Seminar on Debates about Religion and Sexuality
From June 5 to 14, 2012, Harvard Divinity School will host the Seminar on Debates about Religion and Sexuality. This seminar is for scholars, other writers, religious leaders, and public advocates who are working on a first large project in which they hope to change the terms of current debates around religions and sexuality. For scholars, this project would be either a doctoral dissertation or a first book. For other writers, religious leaders, and public advocates, it might be a first book, though it might also be a new curriculum, series of public presentations, or media piece.
The seminar will be directed by Mark D. Jordan, Richard Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Divinity, Harvard Divinity School. The seminar is limited to twelve participants. Harvard Divinity School will pay for their travel to Cambridge and their lodging and meals during the seminar. Applicants to the seminar should be working on a dissertation, a first book, or a similar large-scale writing project that is centrally concerned with religion and sexuality. Applications are due February 1, 2012. Invitations to the seminar will be issued by February 15. Details of the application and further information about the program are available online at http://www.hds.harvard.edu/rsseminar.
