logo“Saving the World?  The Changing Terrain of American
Protestant Missions”

The Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals (ISAE) at Wheaton
College in conjunction with a grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc.,
announces a grant competition for its project, “Saving the World? The
Changing Terrain of American Protestant Missions.”  Eight $1,000 grants
will be awarded for “communications” (case studies) that explore various
dimensions of the changes that have taken place in the years since the
landmark Edinburgh Missionary Conference of 1910.

Submissions should pay close attention to the rich diversity of the
American Protestant tradition, taking into account the ways in which
change affected people, congregations, denominations, institutions
(particularly seminaries), and organizations over time.

Papers are expected to fall within a range of 3,000 to 4,000 words and
will be presented as part of a session at a project-related academic
conference in the spring of 2010.  The ISAE welcomes proposals from both
established scholars and graduate students.

Interested parties should submit three copies of their proposal (300-500
words) together with a copy of their c.v. and relevant bibliography to:

Andrew Tooley/Grant Proposal
Wheaton College
Wheaton, IL 60187

The deadline for submission is May 31, 2009.  For further information
