The SSRC program on religion and the public sphere will convene twelve advanced graduate students and five distinguished professors for a five-day dissertation workshop on religion and international affairs. The workshop will provide participants with a unique opportunity to share their ongoing work and receive critical feedback from their peers as well as from a small group of distinguished faculty members. During the course of the workshop, students will lead discussions of their own projects and entertain critiques from both student and faculty participants on their fieldwork or research plans, writing strategies, and conceptual frameworks. Prior to the workshop, participants will prepare synthetic essays incorporating what they take to be the key methodological and thematic issues in each of the projects to be presented and discussed. These synthetic papers will themselves be presented at the workshop and will help to orient discussions.
The workshop will take place June 5-9, 2011, at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California. In most cases, the SSRC will fully cover participants’ travel, lodging, and meal expenses for the duration of the workshop. Limited funds are available for participants traveling from outside the United States.
