Collaboration is at the heart of what we do.
Professor Martin Marty worked to put religion scholars and their research into conversation with the wider public.
We follow his example, building partnerships that help academic institutions and society work with and learn from each other.
The Marty Center regularly collaborates with researchers, community and civic leaders, journalists, non-profits, and others within and outside of the University of Chicago. Combining their expertise with the resources and knowledge of the Divinity School, we create innovative programming, training, and storytelling centered on religion and help our partners address the issues they care about most.
What can we do together?
An author talk series created with Hyde Park's legendary Seminary Co-Op Bookstore. A collaborative conference convening scholars, creatives, journalists, organizers, policy-makers, and others to discuss the relationship of religion to the politics of human reproduction. A Black pastoral leadership development program that connects the church leaders of tomorrow. A multimedia research initiative about representations of Islam in video games.
These are just some of the recent partnerships and projects the Marty Center has facilitated. What’s your idea?
