The ISH brings together scholars, healthcare professionals, religious leaders, and the public to learn how spirituality can impact health and healing. The Institute engages in education, research, and direct services. ISH is looking for help in researching and disseminating knowledge in areas of key interest in the intersection of spirituality and well-being.
1. Religious and Spiritual Dimensions of Disorders of Consciousness
2. ISH Podcast
ISH is in the early stages of developing a podcast that focuses on a wide array of themes within the field of spirituality and health. Students would work closely with ISH Director of Ethnography & Workplace Chaplaincy, Susana McCollom, to produce content and get it live. This process includes researching potential topics and “guests” to explore/interview, generating scripts and outlines for episodes, scheduling times to record, mixing and producing the content, and finally promoting the podcast to the wider community. This project may also include a media research component, where the student would work to better understand the historical significance of podcasts as new media, which may guide ISH’s understanding of the most effective methods to use.
