Wendy Cadge awarded NEH grant

Wendy Cadge, co-founder of the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab, has been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the project “Mapping Religious Transformation in Boston’s Hidden Sacred Spaces.” The project will build a mobile application and a website, as well as run feature radio pieces on WBUR, about the sacred spaces of public buildings in and around Boston.

Professor Cadge will partner with Michael Epstein of Walking Cinema, as well as collaborators across disciplines in the humanities, to create a rich experience of how people experience the sacred. The project will run from January 1 to December 31, 2019.


Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation.
