2020 Annual Symposium for Pilgrimage Studies


We hope this message finds you healthy and safe. The leadership committee of the Institute of Pilgrimage Studies at William & Mary has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Symposium on Pilgrimage Studies due to widespread uncertainties and challenges resulting from this global pandemic. We share in the disappointment of many who look forward to our annual gathering and hope that you will all join us in the Fall of 2021.

In lieu of the Symposium, we will increase our on-line offerings, including compiling digital resources that may be useful to you and your students. We also plan to host live on-line events throughout the year in which you can participate at the time or view later.

Stay tuned for updates and we look forward to connecting with you soon!

Kathleen Jenkins and James Barber

Co-Directors, Institute for Pilgrimage Studies
