Many people contribute to the work of MAVCOR. By design, the Initiative is committed to providing a multi-disciplinary community of collaborators at all ranks of academic practice and among those in other professions of immediate relevance to the intersection of religions and visual/material cultures (artists, architects, curators, and religious practitioners and leaders among them).
Members of the Advisory Network are specialists with substantial records in these subject fields. Initiative Fellows have been invited to convene over multi-year periods around a specific topic of study. The work of Research Affiliates from multiple institutions, national and international, directly engages Initiative subjects from a variety of perspectives; the Sensory Cultures of Religion Research Group, composed of Yale University graduate students and faculty, accomplishes similar labor in New Haven, providing an institutional forum for the presentation of research-in-progress. The New Scholarship Roundtable (located under 2011 conference pages) assembled, for the conference in November 2011, a group of graduate student and junior faculty participants from the USA and abroad, aiming to bring new ideas and fresh energy to these conversations in collaboration with individuals who have come more recently to these fields and professions.
