April 08, 2008
Posted by Administrator

The University of Oxford's Ian Ramsey Centre and the Centre for Anthropology
and Mind are accepting applications for research proposals in the area of
Cognitive Science of Religion and Theology ($800,000 to award in total).
 Applications are invited from scholars of any nationality post-Masters level or
equivalent and beyond.  We seek proposals for focused, one- or two-year projects
that address either the evidential needs of the cognitive science of religion or
explore the philosophical and theological implications of assumptions and
findings in the field.

An initial round of awards will be made in summer 2008.  We anticipate
awarding approximately 15 grants in this first round (including all four
two-year grants in summer 2008) between June 2008 and May 2009.

project page
