The Religion and Culture Workshop is a weekly interdisciplinary seminar for the discussion of work in progress by CCSR dissertation fellows and visiting scholars. The goal of the workshop is to foster a writers’ group in which participants 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. In 2021-2022 the seminar meets on Mondays from noon to 1:20 pm. 

The workshop is led by Associate Director Jenny Wiley Legath and brings together researchers working in a variety of disciplines, including history, anthropology, literature, architecture, art, and area studies.
