Further to discussions about the low number of women presenting at the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) conference, and the disgustingly low number of women presenting at the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) conference in 2011 – what are the comparative figures for the American Academy of Religion (AAR) conference this year?

The names for the first 200 abstracts include 119 male and 81 female presenters.

So based on the samples carried out, the percentages of women presenting at the three largest annual religious studies conferences are:

American Academy of Religion (AAR): 41%

Society of Biblical Literature (SBL): 29%

Evangelical Theological Society (ETS): 1%
