Two faculty members of the Yale Divinity School have received support from the Louisville Institute for their collaborative projects. Serene L. Jones, associate professor of theology, is working on a Dominican University-led project titled "'Hope Deferred': Theological Reflections on Reproductive Loss." Peter S. Hawkins, professor at the Yale and Berkeley divinity schools and in the Institute of Sacred Music, is working with University of Dubuque professor Paula J. Carlson on the third volume of the publication "Listening for God: Contemporary Literature and the Life of Faith." The Louisville Institute supports research and leadership education projects, and seeks to nurture inquiry and conversation regarding the character, problems, contributions and prospects of the historic institutions and commitments of American Christianity in ways that are beneficial to both scholars and religious leaders.
