Emerging Scholars in Religious Ethics

Now Accepting Applications

Deadline extended to July 31, 2018

PURPOSE 

Rising scholars working in Christian, Jewish, and Muslim faith traditions are invited to apply to the Emerging Scholars in Religious Ethics Colloquy. The Colloquy is hosted by the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture at Duquesne University and supported through a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.

A total of six scholars will be invited to participate. Selected participants will form a peer cohort to encourage inter-religious collaboration, shared inquiry, and professional development. The cohort will meet at the 2019 and 2020 joint annual meetings of the Society of Christian Ethics, the Society of Jewish Ethics, and the Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics. Participants will develop original manuscripts on the future of religious ethics.
