Call for Applications: Theology as Interdisciplinary Inquiry, A Writing Workshop for Early Career Scholars

March 2 – April 8, 2020

The Center of Theological Inquiry published Theology as Interdisciplinary Inquiry: Learning with the Natural and Human Sciences in 2017. This volume distills the insights of three interdisciplinary inquiries at CTI in dialogue with anthropology, psychology, and law. Building on this project, the Center welcomes applications from early career scholars—doctoral, post-doctoral, and pre-tenure— who address the methodological question of theology as interdisciplinary inquiry in their own current research.

Applicants must submit a draft thesis/book chapter or a draft article for a peer-reviewed journal on any interdisciplinary theological topic which they would revise as work-in-progress during this full time, intensive writing workshop over six weeks in Princeton. Members of the Writing Workshop work daily in adjacent offices at the Center’s Luce Hall, Monday to Thursday. They present their work in progress in weekly seminars and enjoy daily lunches with the CTI research community. The Center provides furnished housing for workshop members, who must cover all other living costs, including travel.
