Thanks to the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation, the Political Theology Network is awarding up to 5 grants of $500 each for students who will be attending the American Academy of Religion (AAR) meeting in November. Award recipients will be invited to participate in a mid-day workshop and a dinner on Friday, November 22nd, where they will connect with senior scholars in their area of study.
Students are invited to submit a chapter of their dissertation to “workshop” with fellow students and four scholars in the area. The goal is to help facilitate completion of the dissertation and to assist students in transitioning to careers. The workshop will also provide students with a network of peers in the field and allow for a discussion about the state of political theology more broadly.
The award is available to PhD students who have completed all of their degree requirements except the dissertation. We especially invite applications from PhD students who take an interdisciplinary, or cross-disciplinary approach to their studies.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV, a 500-word personal statement indicating how your research addresses the intersection of religion and politics, and a chapter of your dissertation or a long paper related to your dissertation topic that you would like the workshop to discuss. More information and an application form are available here. Applications are due by September 10, 2019.
