Visiting Scholar Program

The Center for the Study of Religion has announced a new short-term visiting scholar program, to begin in the spring of 2024. Building on a successful pilot program in March 2023, this initiative aims to support contingent and independent scholars by bringing them to campus for a short-term residence and offering them opportunities to participate in the Center’s intellectual community. During their stay, the Visiting Scholar will offer a public research lecture, visit with students and classes, and participate in other Center initiatives, such as our regular writing and reading groups. Depending on the scholar’s interests, additional events may be scheduled, such as a community lecture for audiences beyond the university.
