News & Announcements

Our own Prof. Vanessa Ochs served as the acting field producer for this PBS editon of "Religion and Ethics Newsweekly." We hope the first six minutes of interviews will be of particular interest, as they give a firsthand account of the issues many scholars of religion will be watching in 2016. 

Included in the interviews are UVa professor Kathleen Flake and UVa alum, Rumee Ahmed, now at the University of British Columbia. 

Our own Professor Nichole Flores has been named as the Religious Studies Mellon Humanities Fellow by The Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures (IHGC).

We are very pleased to announce a three-year, $1 million grant awarded by the Henry Luce Foundation to the Virginia Center for the Study of Religion (VCSR).

We have added a partial list of faculty books to the web site here, along with links to their publishers. This list is in beta and will be expanded over time.
