HRC Supports Theologians Studying LGBT Issues

The Human Rights Campaign announced today that it has awarded 14 scholarships to doctoral level theological students whose work focuses on the intersections of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender concerns with theology. The recipients included three Chicago-area scholars.

Rev. Julianne Buenting is a doctoral student at Chicago Theological Seminary. Her work focuses on the intersection between queer studies and Christian practical theology, specifically worship and ritual practice.

Brandy Daniels will be beginning her PhD work in Theology, Ethics and Human Sciences at Chicago Theological Seminary this fall. She intends to study Christian theology, gender and sexuality.  

Barbara Schwartz will begin her doctoral studies this fall at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary pursuing a PhD in theology, ethics and history.

Recipients of the $15,000 awards will also be attending a five-day summer institute at the Vanderbilt University School of Divinity.

    Yay for all three – but especially the two from our alma mater!

      I love CTS, but I have to give equal yays to all three. Barbara Schwartz, the one who is studying at Garrett, is someone I know from Oklahoma. Total small world thing.
