The Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion (BCSR) advances creative and critical scholarship on religion. BCSR’s public programming, faculty research, and graduate training drives new approaches to the study of religion and its intellectual and material contexts. 

Since its founding in 2012, BCSR has become a nexus for interdisciplinary collaboration, uniting leading scholars from an array of disciplines and responding to recent developments in the humanities and social sciences. 

BCSR is generously funded by the Henry Luce Foundation, the Division of Arts and Humanities, and the Division of Social Sciences.
