Purity & Impurity Across Anthropology, Psychology & Religious Studies: Contaminating Disciplines

The central approach of the conference is to promote cross-disciplinary scholarly exploration and conversation on purity, impurity, and disgust by bringing together scholars contributing to the fields of anthropology, psychology, and religious studies. Questions of purity have played a significant role in these disciplines in recent years, but each discipline, in accord with its dominant methodology, has taken a different view on such questions.
