Welcome to SRC

Science, Religion, and Culture (SRC) at Harvard Divinity School conducts interdisciplinary research and convenes forums to inform public and scholarly conversations on the interaction of scientific, religious, and cultural constructs around the world. Focusing on the anthropological, historical, philosophical, and theological dimensions, SRC investigates science and religion beyond given categories, carefully unpacking the production and consumption of these discourses and their interactions in many different socio-historical contexts. The program invites students, scholars, faculty, and members of the public to participate in our mission through various fellowship programs, public events, digital publication, and scholarly conferences.

March 5: (Un)Familiar Deaths: Politics of Death and Dying in the Contemporary World



Memorial Church, Harvard Yard

From Selma to Ferguson, and from the AIDS pandemic to queer teens taking their own lives, death in contemporary America is not the same for all. For some, death forms a tragic, continual aspect of daily life, and yet for all of us, these deaths are obscured by discrimination and marginalization. How, when, and why we die differs drastically in America, in ways deeply affected by race, religion, politics, science, and more.
