“As a result of the grant I received from the Catholic Thought and Culture program, I was able to complete a book titled Rawlsian Reflections in Religion and Applied Philosophy (Penn State University Press). I was also able to complete some articles, all of which explored the implications of neoclassical or process theism. All of these works are attempts to drive a wedge between traditional theism, on the one hand, and religious skepticism, on the other.”
“The Catholic Thought and Culture Research Grant I received in 2011 enabled me to conduct research that resulted in conference presentations and publications. In England in the 1640s, after religious and political tensions turned into armed conflict between the High Church Anglican King Charles I and his Puritan Parliament, poet and Anglican priest Richard Crashaw converted to Catholicism and escaped Cambridge just before the Puritan army descended upon the city. My work examines the effects of Crashaw’s conversion on his representations of emotional states in his last, posthumous collection, Carmen Deo Nostro (1652). Without the generosity of the Catholic Thought and Culture Research Grant, neither my research on Crashaw’s Catholicism nor my ability to share it with colleagues in literary studies would have been possible.”
