Reporting on Religion

Luce/ACLS Program in Religion, Journalism, and International Affairs

In 2016 Professor Elizabeth Bucar was awarded an inaugural Religious, Journalism, and International Affairs (RJIA) grant for a two year project called “Reporting on Religion.”

This funding supported collaboration between religious studies and journalism through two projects. The first project developed an experiential course called “Reporting on Religion” that Bucar co-taught with journalism professor Carlene Hempel. Together the two developed a course to deliver targeted religious literacy to journalism students and then applied these frameworks and concepts in a week-long reporting trip to Granada Spain.

The second project was a day-long workshop, “Reporting on Religion: Rethinking the Ways Journalists and Scholars Communicate.” The workshop brought together working journalists across various media—print, broadcast, and radio—as well as several religious studies scholars who are thought-leaders in their various fields, for a series of collaborative conversations.
