Honorary Life Membership of the EASR

EASR has decided at its annual meeting in Bremen in 2007 to honour colleagues who have distinguished themselves through life-long service to the history of religions. The status of "Honorary Life Member of the EASR" is conferred in recognition of their scholarship and service to our discipline.

Honorary life memberships can be conferred on senior scholars who have distinguished themselves through life-long service to the history of religions through their scholarship, regular participation in EASR conferences, service as national or international officers, and/or other outstanding contributions. Such memberships would help to designate the range of interests current in the EASR and would provide a wide circle of consultants in relation to EASR-related activities.

Nomination Procedures

The Executive Committee appoints an Honorary Membership Committee, which proposes names of suitable candidates for honorary membership. The Execuitive Committee can then recommend the proposed candidates to the General Assembly for the conferment of the distinction.
