Echoes of Responsibility

Phil Lord


This report draws upon the issues discussed in my law review article, “Religious Legitimacy.” It discusses and analyses my experience presenting the article at the International Cultic Studies Association’s and the Center for Studies on New Religions’ Annual Conferences in June of 2022 as a microcosm of the importance of scholarly responsibility and dialogue. My experience highlighted and personalised these issues, leading me to deepen some reflections that find their roots in my earlier writing. This report is my effort to share some of these insights and reflections.
