The Religious Worlds of New York summer institute has met five times since 2012, at Union Theological Seminary, in the Manhattan neighborhood of Morningside Heights. We have received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to hold our next institute in July 2021, but we are not yet sure how the COVID pandemic will affect our plans.  We very much hope to hold an in-person institute next summer, but we will not risk the health and safety of our summer scholars to do so.

If you are interested in attending our next institute, please click here to contact us, and we'll let you know more details as soon as they are available.  Meanwhile, click the links below to learn more about our most recent program, including:
