Charting Academic Landscapes

We build databases, review existing academic practices, and facilitate conversations to help academic disciplines make smart decisions about how to direct their research efforts and resources. We create a richer understanding of the boundaries and activities of academic disciplines.

Active Projects

Field Mapping uses advanced data analytics and social network approaches to reveal the underlying structure of research on religion that analyzes and investigates the variation in research trends across time and space, answering the questions about who, where, how, and why the scientific study of religion is being pursued across the globe.

Philosophy of Religion is a public forum for leading scholars to answer central, field-defining questions in a space outside the strictures of more formal publications and presentations, creating data that can be systemically analyzed to discover what underlying factors are driving broad disagreements within the field and offer guidance for the future of philosophy of religion in the academy.
