In 2016, the Yale Divinity Library participated in the Ithaca S+R project that investigated the research practices of religious studies scholars at eighteen institutions of higher education in the United States. The Divinity team interviewed faculty members in Yale’s Department of Religious Studies and Divinity School, representing diverse research interests across different religious traditions, cultural contexts, and time periods. At this forum, Suzanne Estelle-Holmer, Graziano Krätli, and Christine Richardson will discuss the design of the project, what the results indicate, and how the data will be used to enhance faculty support services.
