Request for Applications: Charlottesville Summer Institute for Scholars of Religion

January 25, 2022

UVA Democracy Initiative's Religion, Race & Democracy Lab and the Memory Project are seeking 20 emerging and mid-career scholars of religion from UVA and across the United States to collaborate with local scholars, artists, and journalists for a summer institute on public scholarship, called "Learning with Charlottesville: Narratives of Religion, Race & Democracy." 

Using Charlottesville’s distant and more recent history as case studies and guided by experienced scholars, participants will learn the art and techniques of producing public narratives about religion, race, and justice in their own communities. In the months to follow the summer institute, participants will produce a short-form audio piece inspired by a U.S. location of their choosing.

Application Deadline: April 4, 2022, 11:59 PM EST
