Research Opportunity for AASR Member Graduate Students
The history of the AASR is an important one and something that we must continually keep up-to-date as one marker of the study of religions in Africa. However, and you will notice this if you visit our website, we need to write the history of the last decade (2010-2020). It was a critical decade for the Association with many conferences held, ideas shared, and continued growth in the study of religions in Africa.
Accordingly, we are interested in partnering with an AASR Member Graduate Student to write this history. The task is to interview some of the essential voices (we will connect you with them), read through various documents from the decade, and then write a comprehensive history of the years 2010-2020 for our records (with a condensed version published on our website). You are more than welcome to use this research as part of your studies, and we will provide a USD 750 Honorarium and a complimentary 2022 Membership Fee.
Only Graduate Students who are members of the AASR are eligible to apply. To apply for this opportunity, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- An up-to-date C.V.
- The name and contact information for one reference
- A 350-word response outlining why you wish to take on this task and what qualifies you to do so.
The deadline for applications is November 15, 2021.
