Cognition, Religion, and Theology Project – Summer Workshop 09
The Cognition, Religion, and Theology Project (University of Oxford) is hosting a Summer Workshop on the cognitive science of religion. The workshop will provide scholars who are interested in conducting empirical research in the area, but who have little or no experience in quantitative methods, with training in relevant techniques and tools (e.g., measurement, quantitative analysis, experimental design).
The workshop will take place during 10th-22nd August 2009 at Christ Church, Oxford. Workshop costs, including full-board accommodation for all participants at Christ Church, will be met by the Cognition, Religion, and Theology Project (funded by the John Templeton Foundation). Although transportation expenses will not normally be provided, funds are available for exceptional circumstances.
The closing date for applications is 17th April 2009. Applicants may be of any nationality, post-Masters level or equivalent and beyond. Successful applicants will be expected to develop projects that address the evidential needs of the cognitive science of religion field. The course will assist all participants in the preparation of research proposals for submission to the Project's Small Grant Competition. Workshop staff will provide ongoing guidance to participants in the subsequent implementation of research.
