Young Scholars in American Religion

The Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture is pleased to announce we are now taking applications for the 2019-20 Young Scholars in American Religion program.

The next generation of leading teachers and scholars in American religion is at work in our colleges and universities today. With support from Lilly Endowment, the Center assists these early career scholars in the improvement of their teaching and research and in the development of professional communities through the Young Scholars in American Religion program. In addition to its historic concentration on teaching and research, the Young Scholars program now includes a seminar devoted to such other professional issues as constructing a tenure portfolio, publication, grant writing, and department politics.

Beginning in 2019, a series of seminars devoted to the enhancement of teaching and research will be offered in Indianapolis. The aims of all sessions of the program are to develop ideas and methods of teaching in a supportive workshop environment, stimulate scholarly research and writing, and create a community of scholars that will continue into the future.

The dates for these seminars are:

Session I: March 20-24, 2019
Session II: October 2-6, 2019
Session III: April 1-5, 2020
Session IV: October 14-18, 2020

James Bennett and Laura S. Levitt will lead the 2019-2020 seminars.

All application materials, including letters of recommendation, must be received by November 9th.Ā
