Benefits of Membership
Become a member of the Society for the Study of Christian Spirituality and receive benefits such as:
- A subscription to Spiritus
- Access to online Society information
- Invitations to Annual Meeting events
- Ability to post information about your scholarship on the SSCS blog Christian Spirituality Studies.
The Society welcomes to membership all who share the Society’s interest in the study of Christian spirituality, a growing ecumenical, interdisciplinary, and academic field. Students are invited to join at a reduced rate.
Those interested in becoming members may do so through Johns Hopkins University Press, which publishes the Society’s journal, Spiritus, sent to all members. Membership dues include a subscription to Spiritus.
Members receive the journal; an annual mailing preceding the Annual Meeting; invitations to special events of the Society held before and during the AAR; and information on smaller, bi-annual meetings focused on specific themes and usually held outside the United States. Members are also encouraged to participate in the Society’s work by attending the annual Business Meeting, nominating members of the Board of Directors, and proposing topics for sessions held during the AAR and bi-annual meetings.
