If you're a graduate student in the academic study of religion looking for an opportunity to present your work, the Department of Religion at FSU hosts an annual symposium that might be of interest. There's always a strong American religious history component to the conference, so readers of this blog will feel right at home. (I can also personally attest that it's a great conference with great people!) The CFP is below.
