Religious Studies Project Opportunities Digest – 14 October 2014

Dear subscribers,

This week’s digest features a renewed invitation from our archivist, Martin Lepage, to participate in the Religious Studies Project:

We would like to send an other call for help with the transcription of the RSP interviews. The transcripts will be key to improve accessibility to anyone interested in our work. They may also form the basis for future projects by the RSP. If you wish to participate in this task, you will obviously get credit for each transcription you can help with (whether in print or online). Interested? Please get in touch with Martin at to determine the best way to work together. We already have a list of interviews we would like to transcribe, but feel free to share your preferences with us. Thanks in advance!

And now, for this week’s digest. As usual, RSP is not responsible for any content found (or not found) below. For any questions regarding the individual posts, please contact the respective organizers. Enjoy!
