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.

We have a need for more pedagogical work on the teaching of public history, but we do not need more theory, jargon, or how-to-do-it manuals. What we need are stories.
