LRDA is a new research initiative at Saint Louis University that works with local religious communities, museums, parks, schools, and other civic organizations to develop deeply-considered, multisensory inventories of lived religion. 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 fellowships. Awards will be made available to colleagues of all ranks and faculty status, independent scholars, advanced graduate students, and other professionals.
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 are also encouraged.
Join us for this in-depth exploration of museums and curated cultural collections around Washington, D.C. This four-week NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers will bring the rich and diverse histories of America’s public museums into wider use for teaching and research in the humanities. The Institute approaches museums as sites for interdisciplinary inquiry into advances in humanistic and scientific research, the effects of ongoing international conflicts, the speed of evolving technologies, and ethical debates over privacy, sustainability, and cultural heritage.
