Sacred Writes

People in this story

Generously funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and hosted by Northeastern University, Sacred Writes provides support, resources, and networks for scholars of religion committed to translating the significance of their research to a broader audience. Over the life of the project (2018-2022), we will host trainings for scholars, create and fund partnerships between scholars and media outlets, and convene meetings to discuss best practices for public scholarship.
