Summer Workshops for Young Scholars Announced


The Center of Theological Inquiry (CTI) has announced two five-day residential workshops for 2014 that will cover subjects in the fields of evolution and human nature, and religious experience and moral identity. Participating scholars include theologians Celia Deane-Drummond and Stephen Pope, anthropologist Agustín Fuentes, philosopher Robert Roberts, and psychologist Michael Spezio.

Supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation and aimed at doctoral and post-doctoral students, the workshops will run from June 2–6, 2014. The first workshop will examine the dialogue between theology and human evolution, while the second will explore the interaction of psychology, theology, and philosophy in understanding religious experience and moral behavior.

Ten successful applicants for each workshop will receive financial assistance towards travel and lodging, based on need and support from home institutions. The application window for young scholars will be announced on January 20, 2014. Full details for the workshops are available online.
