The Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) at the University of Cambridge announces a two-week summer workshop for early career scholars across the humanities and social sciences (1-12 July 2019), focused on securalism, religious diversity and the modern university.

Following on from the successful Summer Workshop on Religious Diversity and the Secular University in July 2018, CRASSH invites applications from early career scholars to participate in a two-week summer workshop devoted to some of the most critical issues in the emergence of the modern university and our historical moment: the related questions of secularism and religious diversity.

Three world-class senior scholars will be in residence to lead the workshop:

  • Akeel Bilgrami (Philosophy, Columbia University)
  • Tariq Modood (Sociology, Politics and Public Policy, University of Bristol)
  • Melissa Lane (Politics, Princeton University)
Applications are made online and should include a cv, two letters of reference, a writing sample and an indication of the topic of the likely work in progress for discussion. Applications will be accepted until midday on 1 December 2018.
