The Center for Culture, Society and Religion offers two weekly workshops. These workshops are designed for the recipients of our graduate students research awards and our postdoctoral research associates.
Culture, Society and Religion Workshop
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.
Religion and the Public Conversation Media Team
The Religion and the Public Conversation Media Team is a weekly interdisciplinary seminar exploring the uses and potentials for religion scholarship for various publics, and equipping students with tools to integrate their scholarship with a range of contemporary media landscapes. RPC Media Team fellows, postdoctoral fellows, and affiliated scholars learn together to distill their work for non-academic audiences, develop media production skills such as script-writing and video editing, workshop one another’s public-facing scholarship, and collaborate to produce works that are hosted on the CCSR website.
