Founded in October of 2007 in conjunction with the Social Science Research Council’s program on Religion and the Public Sphere, The Immanent Frame was named an official honoree of the 12th annual Webby Awards and a “favorite new religion site, egghead division” by The Revealer. CNN has called The Immanent Frame “exceptionally eye opening.” In September of 2011, The Immanent Frame partnered with Killing the Buddha to launch Frequencies, later named an official honoree of the 16th annual Webby Awards.
