LRDA is a research initiative at Saint Louis University that works to develop deeply-considered, multisensory inventories of lived religion and to scrutinize the translation of lived experiences and spaces into digital products. We invite scholars trained in religion, theology, history, digital humanities, urban studies, American studies, and other related fields to participate in these efforts through competitive research and teaching fellowships.

Research fellowships will be made available to colleagues of all ranks and faculty status, independent scholars, advanced graduate students, and other professionals. Projects need not be based in St. Louis, MO.

For teaching fellowships, we invite applications from instructional faculty at any rank to support new and/or redesigned courses that address topics, themes, or subjects relevant to the study of lived religion in the digital age. We are especially interested in supporting efforts to bring students into interaction with religious diversity through site visits; urban, community, or neighborhood studies; and/or digital storytelling. Proposals that seek collaboration with community partners, across disciplines of study, and/or across teaching contexts are encouraged. Joint proposals also encouraged.

No prior digital humanities experience is required. Deadline January 31, 2021. Find the complete calls at For questions contact LRDA Co-Director Rachel Lindsey (
