A NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges Program

Spring 2012–Fall 2013

The Newberry Library invites applications from teams of two to four faculty with sponsoring administrators from the same community college campus or system who will participate in this program that focuses on collaborative research for curriculum development integrating religious pluralism into teaching. From spring 2012 through fall 2013, participating faculty will conduct research in the Newberry Library's collections and join in discussions with prominent scholars to gain a better understanding of American religious history.

From June 25–29, 2012, selected faculty will attend a series of seminars at the Newberry Library with scholars whose work they will read. Faculty will implement material into new/existing courses and collaborate online. Faculty and sponsoring administrators will return to the Newberry Library to research, discuss potential campus programming on religious pluralism, and advise in creating a project website.

Participating Faculty:

  • Diana Eck, Harvard University Divinity School and director of the Pluralism Project
  • Aziz Huq, University of Chicago Law School
  • Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago Divinity School
  • Kevin Schultz, University of Illinois, Chicago
  • Tisa Wenger, Yale University Divinity School
