A graduate student workshop – taught by leaders in the field and held in conjunction with the meetings of the Association for the Study of Religion, Economics and Culture
March 16-18, 2023
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
Application deadline: December 17th, 2022
This workshop will introduce a select group of graduate students to the economics of religion through a combination of formal instruction, conference sessions, advice, interaction, and feedback. The instructional lectures will summarize key concepts and results; the ASREC conference sessions will cover recent research in the field; Q&A sessions will provide practical advice and resources; meals, receptions, and other social events which will help participants build relationships with both students and established scholars. The workshop builds on the success we have had with past ASREC conferences and advanced graduate workshops.
Faculty leaders will include Dr. Laurence Iannaccone and Dr. Jared Rubin (Chapman U.), Dr. Jean-Paul Carvalho (Oxford U.) and Dr. Avital Livny (U Illinois Urbana-Champaign).
Applications should include a CV and a brief letter with your name, university affiliation, email, name of a faculty reference, and your reasons for applying.
Chapman’s Institute for the Study of Religion, Economics, and Society (IRES) and the John Templeton Foundation (JTF) will provide an honorarium (after the event), which will cover the cost of economy flights, transportation, and any meals not provided by the event. The hotel stay and conference registration will be paid directly by IRES and JTF.
