Public Scholarship in Religion and Public Education: A Seminar

Enhancing Opportunities for Collaboration Between Religious and Theological Studies Scholars and K-12 Educators

Religious studies scholars widely support enhancing education about religion in K-12 public schools that leads to greater religious literacy and democratic pluralism. The difficulty arises when translating this support into action. Scholars quickly encounter the legal and social complexity of U.S. public education and the challenges inherent in public scholarship. This program seeks to establish a small community of practice dedicated to cultivating the public scholarship knowledge and skills necessary for religious studies scholars to collaborate effectively with public schools and educators.

More details, and information on how to apply are available online. Please note that this seminar is only open to scholars in New England & the Canadian Maritimes region. The deadline is February 18, 2020.
