Mission

The CSWR seeks to promote the study of the world’s religions in their classical and contemporary forms, serving both as a residential community of students and scholars and an international “think tank” in the study of religion. In accomplishing this, we strive to focus our efforts along the following themes:

  • Race, Religion, and Nationalism
  • Poetry, Philosophy, and Religion
  • Matter and Spirit: Ecology and the Non-Human Turn
  • Time and Technology
  • The Future of the Study of Religion
