The Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute invites you to attend our December webinar, Religious Studies and Sports: Tips for Sharing Scholarship with the Public. We will discuss how scholars of religion can share work on religion and sports with different publics. We are pleased to host co-presenters Rebecca Alpert, senior associate dean of the College of Liberal Arts and professor of religion at Temple University; Tom Krattenmaker, an author and columnist specializing in religion and public life; and Zach Smith, a PhD candidate in sport studies at the University of Tennessee. The webinar will include a presentation and extended Q & A.
This webinar is hosted by the Public Scholars Project, a joint initiative of the Public Understanding of Religion Committee of the American Academy of Religion and the Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute. The Public Scholars Project created this webinar series to help scholars hone their skills at communicating with a variety of publics. Our webinars feature scholars and practitioners who can provide tools, resources and recommendations for presenting in a variety of settings (e.g., social media, news, public events and community gatherings) about a range of topics.
