The Boisi Center is pleased to announce its tenth annual Graduate Symposium on Religion and Politics, which provides an opportunity for informal reflection and conversation among graduate students from different disciplines on the relationship between religion, politics, art, and culture. This year's theme is: "Deep Stories: Narrative's Role in American Religion and Politics."

The Symposium, an informal and student-led graduate seminar, will meet approximately once a month from November through April for a free meal and discussion at the Boisi Center (24 Quincy Road, Chestnut Hill, MA).

Interested graduate students should e-mail Zac Karanovich at karanovi@bc.edu by Friday, October 25th, describing your course of study, relevant experience, and your interest in this year’s symposium theme.

Formed in 2018 out of the success of the Transforming Chaplaincy Project, the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab brings chaplaincy leaders, theological educators, clinical educators, and social scientists into a research-based conversation about the state of chaplaincy and spiritual care. Driving our work are questions about how, in the midst of changes in the American religious landscape, spiritual caregivers can do their best work. We aim to improve how chaplains are trained, how they work with diverse individuals (including those with no religious or spiritual backgrounds), and how chaplaincy and spiritual care coheres as a professional field. We’ve produced a case statement on spiritual care today to help start a conversation on how to address spiritual needs most effectively.
