Young Scholar Workshops

by Robin Lovin

Last summer, CTI’s interdisciplinary program of theological inquiry added a new approach with two Young Scholar Workshops in which doctoral students and recent post-docs joined senior scholars from our year-long residential programs to explore “Evolution and Human Nature” and “Religious Experience and Moral Identity.” The 2015 workshop on “Law and Religious Freedom” will be held June 8-12. Up to ten participants who are conducting their own research on the topic will be invited to CTI for a workshop in which they will share their work with one another and with leading researchers from the current Inquiry. Further Young Scholar Workshops are planned in connection with the Inquiry on the Societal Implications of Astrobiology in 2016-17.


Applications for the Young Scholar Workshop on Law and Religious Freedom will be accepted from February 10 - March 20, 2015, with decisions by March 27, 2015.
