The Centre for Studies in Religion and Society invites applications from scholars in Canada or abroad for visiting fellowship appointments of up to 12 months’ duration during the 2010/11 academic year.
Scholarship / Financial aid: two to five fellowships available. Deadline: 31 January 2010
The purpose of the fellowship is to provide research space and an environment conducive to writing and reflection to scholars working on research projects in the area of religion and society.
The Centre welcomes applications from all disciplinary backgrounds for projects that meet its mandate of promoting the scholarly study of religion in relation to any and all aspects of society and culture, both contemporary and historical. Topics may include, but are not limited to, examinations of religious themes within the areas of ethics, health, law, environment, technology, government and public policy, human conflict, art, literature, the media, and currents and debates in philosophy and the natural sciences.

Fellows are expected to conduct their work in the Centre’s quarters, to participate actively in the programs and activities of the Centre, and to give at least one public seminar or lecture on the theme of their research. Fellows are also expected to acknowledge the CSRS in all publications arising from the fellowship, and will deposit one copy of such publications in the Centre’s library.
