Announcing the 2019 Luce/ACLS Fellows in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) has announced the 2019 Luce/ACLS Fellows in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs. Six scholars studying the intersection of religion and global issues have been selected to receive fellowships that will allow them to pursue their research and bring their work to audiences beyond academia. They will have opportunities to attend media training workshops as well as partner with journalists to share their knowledge with the public.

"This year's Luce/ACLS fellows are exploring fascinating connections between religion and environmental conservation, media consumption, and political mobilization,” said John Paul Christy, director of public programs at ACLS. “Their penetrating, innovative research and commitment to media engagement will broaden public awareness of the diverse and sometimes unexpected ways religion informs political and social practice around the world.”
