In order to increase the religious, cultural, and overall diversity of Contributing Scholars, State of Formation is introducing Regional Recruiting Directors (RRD's).
RRD’s will work closely with the Associate Director, and occasionally with the Managing Director, to identify and recruit scholars to the SoF forum. RRD’s will have the ability to pre-approve scholars from within their geographic region to write for SoF, based on their own discretion. The goal will be to ensure representation from across the country -- and set the stage for in-person programming, which is presently being honed.
If you are interested in shaping State of Formation as it expands to cities across the country, please contact the Managing Director of State of Formation, Honna Eichler (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send her a one-page statement of interest. If you are not presently a State of Formation Contributing Scholar, please also submit a current copy of your resume and a writing sample, as well.

The Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue™ is a forum for academic, social, and timely issues affecting religious communities around the world. It is designed to increase the quality and frequency of interchanges between religious groups and their leaders. The Journal seeks to build an inter-religious community of scholars, in which people of different traditions learn from one another and work together for the common good.
