01) Announcing the Berkeley Postdoctoral Fellowship in Public Theology

The Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion (BCSR) announces a new postdoctoral fellowship opportunity as part of its Public Theology Program. The Fellowship in Public Theology is dedicated to the furtherance of the very best new scholarship in religious studies, and, in particular, the development of modes of inquiry that can pioneer new approaches for the study of religion in the public university. For the academic year 2016-17, BCSR seeks a top early career scholar to come to Berkeley for one year.

Applications received by the initial review date of February 1, 2016 receive priority. For more information, including required qualifications and application materials, visit:

02) New Directions in Theology Graduate Student Grants, Coming in 2016

BCSR announces a call for applications for the 2016-17 New Directions in Theology Graduate Student Grants, an opportunity offered through the Public Theology Program. A $5,000 grant will be awarded to incoming first-year and continuing second-year students from a variety of disciplines. Grantees participate as a cohort in biweekly meetings convened by BCSR faculty, receive intellectual guidance on research projects, and contribute to the building of a unified community of inquiry on the Berkeley campus in public theology. Look for nomination guidelines in the coming months. 

 
03) Support the Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion 

Since its inception in 2012, BCSR has hosted dozens of public lectures and seminars, and awarded grants and fellowships to students and faculty. In the coming year, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the Berkeley Public Theology program, an initiative that integrates robust academic research, student participation and support, postdoctoral fellowships, and numerous community-wide conversations, workshops, and conferences, to enliven the BCSR's rich roster of activities.

As the year comes to a close, we ask you to support creative and critical scholarship on religion in the world with a gift of any amount. Thank you!
 
By connecting scholars, students, and the global community, the Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion (BCSR) fosters critical and creative scholarship on religion and activates this scholarship for students and the public at large.
