Religion, Politics and Culture Workshop

This bimonthly interdisciplinary workshop brings together faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral and affiliate fellows to present and discuss in-progress research grappling with religion, politics and culture, or research topics exploring the link between religion and contemporary social issues more generally. Papers are prepared and distributed in advance of each meeting. In rare instances, we will discuss recently published book chapters or essays that are tied to a developing research project.

The workshop, which was developed from a conversation with our graduate students, meets on Friday from 12:00 to 1:30 PM in the Theology Conference Room.
