The Association for the Study of Religion, Economics, and Culture exists to promote interdisciplinary scholarship on religion through conferences, workshops, newsletters, websites, working papers, teaching, and research. ASREC supports all manner of social-scientific methods, but seeks especially to stimulate work based on economic perspectives and the rational choice paradigm.
Funding for ASREC has been provided by Chapman University. Located in Orange, California, Chapman's mission is to provide a personalized education of distinction that leads to inquiring, ethical and productive lives as global citizens. Chapman also sponsors the Institute for the study of Religion, Economy, and Society (IRES).
