CSLR Research Projects

The Center for the Study of Law and Religion sponsors several research projects on discrete themes that have religion at their core but command the analysis of several other disciplines, not the least law and legal theory.  Most projects yield public forums and publications.  Larger projects are driven by a team of Emory senior fellows and scholars from other institutions; some consist of a series of multiyear initiatives, often with the generous support of both Emory University and external benefactors.

In Their Own Words

"For me, as a scholar working on the history of sexual ethics, the real question wasn't "What happened then?" but "How does what happened then influence what happens now?" John Witte's invitation to join his project on sex, marriage, and family created the perfect moment for me, because I was ready to enter a much broader conversation about contemporary debates -- legal, political, sociological, medical -- and to connect with what other scholars were doing."
