The Anabaptist-Mennonite Scholars Network

The Anabaptist-Mennonite Scholars Network (A-MSN) exists as a forum for those who identify with both the academy and the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. It is an association of approximately three hundred members in religion, humanities, and the social sciences. There are three main activities of the A-MSN:

  1. Newsletters. Two newsletters are produced per year. These include short essays on topics such as publishing, academic freedom, and interdisciplinary teaching, and announcements of calls-for-papers, conferences, and faculty openings. Past newsletters are available online.
  2. Database. A web-based searchable database of members is maintained.
  3. Conferences. The A-MSN cosponsored the “Ritual in Anabaptist Communities” conference in 2003 and is planning a joint conference with the Anabaptist Sociology and Anthropology Association and Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary’s Institute of Mennonite Studies in 2006.
