The Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute invites you to attend our March webinar, Religious Studies and Religious Communities: Promising Venues for Public Scholarship. We will discuss how scholars of religion can engage religious communities to raise the visibility of their work. We are pleased to host co-presenters Janet Cooper Nelson, chaplain of Brown University; Alice Hunt, executive director of the American Academy of Religion; and John F.

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.
