The Culture, Society and Religion Workshop is a weekly interdisciplinary seminar exploring religion in its diverse historical, contemporary, philosophical, and literary manifestations. CCSR graduate student fellows, postdoctoral fellows, and affiliated scholars present work-in-progress (usually related to a chapter of their dissertation or book project) and receive constructive criticism. We also aim to encourage intellectual interchange with specialists outside one’s normal discipline or subfield. Papers are prepared and distributed in advance of each week’s meeting. 

The two sections of the workshop are led by CCSR Director Jonathan Gold and Associate Director Jenny Wiley Legath.

Please note: The Culture, Society and Religion workshop replaced the Religion and Culture and Religion and Public Life workshops in 2022.
