Faculty

Jayeel Serrano Cornelio is associate professor and the director of the Development Studies Program at the Ateneo de Manila University. He is also an associate editor of the journal Social Sciences and Missions (Brill). He has held visiting posts at Lancaster University, Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. The broad theme of his work is religious change in the Philippines. He is the author of Being Catholic in the Contemporary Philippines: Young People Reinterpreting Religion (Routledge, 2016).

David Henig is associate professor of cultural anthropology at Utrecht University. Before coming to Utrecht, he held appointments at the School of  Oriental and African Studies in London, and the University of Kent. Since 2015, he has edited the journal History and Anthropology. Over the past decade, he has carried out extensive fieldwork in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he studied the transformation of political economy and reconfiguration of religious institutions and practices in the face of ruptures caused by the political violence and cultural and economic dispossession ensuing from the violent disintegration of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1992 and its aftermaths. This research resulted in numerous articles, one monograph, Remaking Muslim Lives: Everyday Islam in Postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina (University of Illinois Press, 2020); and a co-edited volume with Nicolette Makovicky, Economies of Favour after Socialism (Oxford University Press, 2017).

Angie Heo is assistant professor of anthropology and sociology of religion at Divinity School, University of Chicago. She is an anthropologist of religion, media, and economy and is broadly interested in minority politics, critical mission history, postcolonial nationalism, and global religious movements. Her fieldwork so far has focused on two traditions, Eastern Orthodoxy and Evangelical Protestantism, and her research has explored two geographic regions, the Middle East and East Asia. Heo’s first book The Political Lives of Saints: Christian-Muslim Mediation in Egypt  (University of California Press, 2018) offers a form-sensitive account of Coptic Orthodoxy and Christian-Muslim relations from before the Arab uprisings to their post-revolutionary aftermath. Drawing on traditions of martyrdom, pilgrimage, and icon veneration, it analyses embodied practices of imagination to grasp the vexed interplay of nationalism and sectarianism in Egypt. Heo’s second book (in progress) turns to various sites of religious freedom, transnational capitalism, and Cold War empire in the Korean peninsula.

Live classes

Introduction session
The main goal of the first session is getting to know each other: meet UCSIA, the faculty and your peers.
Attendance: mandatory

Public Lecture
This lecture by Angie Heo is open to
the students and a local and international audience. The students can actively participate in the Q&A section of the webinar.
Attendance: mandatory

Coffee room
Go to the virtual coffee room on Gather.town to meet your peers in an informal manner.
Join whenever you feel like it or
arrange a meeting with (a group of) your peers. Each session will be hosted by UCSIA, but will not be supervised.
Attendance: optional

Paper sessions
The faculty members will each tutor a group of five students of relating disciplines. In these small groups they will thoroughly discuss the papers of the group members. Each paper is allotted 30 minutes of discussion time.
In preparation of each paper discussion, group members and assigned respondents are asked to
read the respective papers and to watch the corresponding video of the paper presentation.
The active participation of students is required during the sessions of their own group, in addition to the sessions where they act as a respondent. Participating in other paper sessions is not mandatory, but is highly recommended given the shortened programme of the summer school.
Attendance: mandatory

Individual tutoring
Book an appointment (15 minutes / slot) with a tutor to receive personal feedback on methodological or multidisciplinary problems within your own research framework.
Attendance: optional

Q&A session
The first 30 minutes of the session will focus on the content of the pre-recorded lectures by Jayeel Cornelio and David Henig. In preparation of this session, students are asked to watch the lectures and to submit their questions and remarks in the comments section below the video. The remaining 30 minutes will be used to talk about and to share experiences from life in academia today.
Different topics can be discussed, such as career planning, freedom of speech, gender issues… Students can ask questions or share experiences in advance, by submitting them via the online form.
Attendance: mandatory

Recordings

Given the online format and the difficulty to match the different time zones, the lectures by Jayeel Cornelio and David Henig and the paper presentations are prerecorded. Students are asked to watch the videos and to submit their questions in the comments section below the video.

Assignments

 1. Paper sessions: response

Students are invited to read the research papers, to watch the prerecorded presentations and to respond to them. Each participant will be a respondent for two papers. The scientific committee matches the papers and the respondents based on research topic, discipline, and research phase. Check the schedule for more information.

Respondents are asked to read the assigned papers thoroughly and to watch the corresponding video presentations. In addition, they are asked to submit their remarks and questions in the comments section below the video, one day before the paper session.
Provide useful feedback on the research methods and potential contributions of the paper. These questions and remarks will be used as discussion points during the paper session, in which the respondents actively participate together with the tutor and the other group members. Please honour the work of your fellow students and prepare properly for this assignment.
