Emerging Scholars in Political Theology Program 2020-21 [USA, Stipend Rs. 1.4 Lakhs]: Apply by Jan 15
The Political Theology Network invites applications from early-career scholars for its 2020-2021 Emerging Scholars in Political Theology program. Vincent Lloyd and Winnifred Sullivan will serve as mentors for the 2020-2021 cohort. Participants will meet in person three times: at Villanova University July 19-24, 2020, in Chicago in January of 2021, and again at Villanova in the Summer of 2021—in addition to online video conference meetings. All expenses will be paid, and Emerging Scholars will receive a $2,000 stipend for their participation.
The Emerging Scholars in Political Theology program is looking for the next generation of creative and thoughtful political theology scholars. Political theology, as we understand it, is an emerging field that uses the methods of humanistic inquiry to study the intersections of religion and politics in public life. Scholars in political theology come from a variety of disciplines including religious studies, theology, law, political theory, anthropology, history, literature, and sociology.
The Emerging Scholars in Political Theology program will involve facilitated discussions of shared readings, teaching and syllabus workshops, and training in public scholarship.
Applicants should have the PhD in hand, but must have received their PhD after December 31, 2015.
To apply, please send a CV and a brief (1 or 2 page) letter of interest to Richard Kent Evans at email@example.com by January 15, 2020.
In your letter of interest, please consider addressing the following questions:
- How do you see the past, present, and future of the field of political theology, and how does your own research contribute to the field?
- Which key texts do you see as forming the “canon” of political theology and why?
- What role does political theology play in your teaching?
