We invite applications for participation in the second annual Dartmouth Summer History Institute on “New Directions in Medieval Religious History.” The aim of the Summer History Institute is to bring together the most promising young scholars (doctorant·es ou jeunes docteur·es) working on medieval religious history to read and workshop pieces of their historical writing, as they embark on the transition from dissertation to book, in order to take stock of emerging considerations and approaches across the field. We are interested in all aspects of religious history, including its links to political, social, cultural, and intellectual history. Applicants should be in the process of completing their Ph.D. dissertation or in the early stages of revising the Ph.D. for publication as a book. (Students finishing their Ph.D. dissertation in spring or summer of 2018 are encouraged to apply.) Prior to the workshop, each participant will furnish a draft article or working dissertation/book chapter central to or exemplary of their larger historical intervention, which participants will discuss at the Institute in the company of invited senior scholars. In addition to these workshop sessions on individual pieces of writing, the Institute will include a variety of fora (receptions, dinners, and lectures) to discuss theoretical and methodological issues.
