God and Human Speech: A Planning Grant in Comparative Science-Engaged Theology

This project draws together 6 psychologists of language, and 6 theologians from across the three Abrahamic faiths. As this is a planning grant, we are building the conceptual, relational and organisational foundation for a subsequent large interdiciplinary project. This subsequent project will be made up of 6 research teams each exploring the development, use and nature of religious language, particularly in reference to neurodiverse and atypical language users.
