2013 CrossCurrents Research Colloquium
2013 Annual Research Colloquium
July 1-26, 2013
Spend the month of July in New York working on a research or writing project related to one of the themes outlined below, with access to libraries and research facilities at Columbia University, Union, Auburn, and Jewish Theological Seminaries. Application deadline is March 1, 2013.
The 2013 CrossCurrents Research Colloquium, in partnership with Auburn Theological Seminary, will explore several themes. Applications from scholars, theologians, activists and artists focusing on one or more of these topics will be accepted:
The Colloquium will bring together fellows (scholars of religion, sociologists, clergy, activists and others) who have worked on these questions and offer them an opportunity for in-depth scholarly exploration of commonalities and differences. By creating an environment conducive to research, open reflection and scholarly inquiry, participants are encouraged to learn from others who have studied different or convergent topics, bringing perspectives from their different fields.
At the Colloquium, fellows spend the length of four weeks together, pursuing individual research as well as gathering as a group for focused and facilitated discussions. Those who are selected for a fellowship are referred to as "Coolidge Scholars" after William A. Coolidge, the principal benefactor of this program. Each Coolidge Scholar works on his or her own project, but benefits by being able to collaborate with others. The collegial relationships that develop within the group are a crucial element of this program and one of its distinctive aspects.
