Faculty seminars and working groups supported by the Center are designed to facilitate connections, conversations, and collaborations on issues related to religion and conflict that cross disciplinary and departmental lines. Interdisciplinary seminars consist of ten to fifteen faculty members who meet regularly for discussion of common texts, methodological and theoretical issues that cross disciplinary boundaries, potential collaborative research projects, and works in progress. Working groups, some of which have emerged out of the interdisciplinary seminars, are focused on more specific projects and related grant development.
