About:

The Center’s seed funding programs seek to stimulate research and inquiry that advances analytic, interpretive, or normative engagement with religion, conflict, or peace, including quantitative, qualitative, and digital humanities proposals.

The Center’s seed grant program supports the development of new ideas and innovative research by investing in ASU faculty who study religion and conflict and/or peace. Research projects may be analytic, interpretive, and/or normative in nature and may include any combination of quantitative, qualitative, historical, and/or digital humanities approaches. Seed grants support projects aimed at the submission of a major grant proposal to an external funding source. Only Arizona State University tenured or tenure-track faculty or research professionals on continuing appointment are eligible to apply. Collaborative projects within ASU, or between ASU researchers and those at other institutions, are encouraged. Applications are generally taken in the spring of each year.

Faculty seminars and working groups supported by the Center are designed to facilitate connections, conversations, and collaborations on issues related to religion and conflict that cross disciplinary and departmental lines. Interdisciplinary seminars consist of ten to fifteen faculty members who meet regularly for discussion of common texts, methodological and theoretical issues that cross disciplinary boundaries, potential collaborative research projects, and works in progress. Working groups, some of which have emerged out of the interdisciplinary seminars, are focused on more specific projects and related grant development.

Applications for faculty seminars and working groups are generally taken in the spring of each year for the following academic year.
