We are pleased to announce the inaugural cohort of the Being Human Summer Institute for early career scholars. The cohort will participate in three workshops over three years, each held in Bloomington and coordinated by a different pair of IUB professors, providing the time and space for these early-career scholars to read and write religion beyond existing genres and rubrics. Selections were based on the promise of current research and each participant’s open, exploratory approach to significant intellectual questions and interest in thinking experimentally and communicating with and from diverse publics (including non-scholarly and different scholarly publics). The cohort will be joined also by our Religion, Science, and Technology Postdoctoral Fellow Evan Price. Our aim is to foster this expansive vision of scholarship with activities outside as well as indoors, including walks, field trips, engagement with the work of a visiting senior scholar, contemplative writing time, and interactive discussions about our individual projects.
