Announcement: QIF Summer Research Seminar 2022
The Quaker Institute for the Future’s 2022 Summer Research Seminar will take place by Zoom from August 8-12. QIF Summer Research Seminars create a venue for spirit-led research using Quaker methods of discernment and reflection. In QIF, “research” goes beyond the usual academic methods and definitions to include any area of personal exploration that grows from spiritual roots, often pursued collaboratively with others in the context of action.
The Summer Research Seminars are centered around research presentations for the whole group that include time for questions, clarification, and discussion, followed by a period of discernment conducted as a meeting for worship. Time is also reserved for theme-based discussions, worship sharing, artistic and other creative sharing, and informal interactions among participants. Both presenters and attenders are welcome.
More information about QIF Summer Research Seminars, including a registration form, is available at quakerinstitute.org. Registration is free; voluntary contributions are welcome. Proposals for presentations should be made by registering before July 15.
Stipends for young scholars — Again, this year, QIF is offering $300 stipends to applicants aged 18 to 35 years old to make a presentation on research that resonates with the QIF mission. Application details can be found at Summer Research Seminar 2022 – Quaker Institute for the Future. Stipend applications are due July 1. With questions, contact Gray Cox at email@example.com or #207-460-1163.
