Religion and Public Life Fellow
To highlight its commitment to Atlanta, the Department has launched a new position, the “Religion and Public Life Fellow.” The Religion and Public Life Fellow is an Atlanta-based high-profile professional who joins the Department for one academic year. This professional — who works in the media, politics, the corporate world, the arts, or a non-profit organization — will explore with us how religion plays a role in his/her profession. The Fellow will present a public lecture; meet with Department alumni, faculty and friends for a private dinner; and work with undergraduate and graduate students throughout the academic year.
The Department of Religious Studies is excited to announce that we will be hosting a new Religion and Public Life Fellow, Rev. Kate McGregor Mosley, Executive Director of Georgia Interfaith Power and Light, a 15-year-old nonprofit serving 15,000 communities of faith across the state “in practices of environmental stewardship and sustainability.” Kate will convene a discussion about religion and environmentalism focused on water at Pizza Tuesday on September 25th starting at 12:30, and she will host a panel conversation on a similar topic on the evening of March 12th. Please plan to join us!
