Religious Studies and Mass Incarceration: Tips for Sharing Scholarship with the Public
The Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute invites you to attend our February webinar, Religious Studies and Mass Incarceration: Tips for Sharing Scholarship with the Public. We will discuss how scholars of religion can share work on religion and mass incarceration with different publics. We are pleased to host co-presenters Tanya Erzen, associate research professor of religion and gender queer studies at University of Puget Sound; Herron Gaston, associate director of admissions at Yale Divinity School; Laura McTighe, assistant professor in the department of religion at Florida State University; and Christophe Ringer, assistant professor of theological ethics and society at Chicago Theological Seminary. 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.
