CSSD has just extended the deadline for its competition for Media Fellows reporting grants for the “Religion and the Global Framing of Gender Violence” initiative to March 26, 2017.
Supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, this project seeks to bring together an international community of scholars, practitioners, journalists, and activists to study the role of religion in naming, framing, and governing gendered violence, with a focus on the Middle East

What does that mean for our understanding of embodiment that is disabled?
