[Synoptic-L] Fellowship Opportunity -- Please send to list
Fellowship Applications Invited
Spend the month of July in New York working on a research or writing project of your choice with access to libraries and research facilities at Columbia University , Union, Auburn , and Jewish Theological Seminaries.
At a time when religion appears to be at the heart of humanity's gravest conflicts, it is clear that an increased understanding of how religion affects our lives is not an option: it is a necessity for survival. Since 1983, CrossCurrents has sponsored the research colloquium because we want to have an impact not only on how religion is taught and studied, but also on the way it influences events that touch us all.
To that end we invite applications for a fellowship that will allow you to spend a month at our expense in a collaborative learning community, diverse in race, age, gender, religion and intellectual discipline working on a project of your design. The successful applicant will have a capacity for integrating his or her faith tradition with the life of the mind, and will outline a project that will be of interest to those outside his or her area of academic specialization or religious tradition.
