Applications are invited to undertake a PhD as part of ‘The New Illuminators: Women in Search of Spiritual Authority and Resilience’ (NISAR) project.

The NISAR research project is a four-year study of the emerging trend of Bible Journaling (and to a lesser extent Quran Journaling), among women readers of the Bible, and other sacred texts, and their creative visual interventions into, onto and beside those texts, as part of their own spiritual practice and engagement with these spiritual writings. The successful PhD student will be integrally involved in the establishment of a database of images of Bible-journaled pages. This project shall collate and cross reference multiple images of journaled pages of sacred texts (primarily the Bible) using qualitative data analysis. The first databank of its kind forming an archival repository of these images shall be created and form the foundation for the ongoing research. The purpose of the project is to analyse the development of spiritual authority among women readers as primary interpreters of these sacred texts. This project will investigate the spiritual autonomy gained, exercised and expressed by women readers through the practice of the creative journaling of their scriptures.

The School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music at Dublin City University, ranked as one of the top 100 universities under 50 as per Times Higher Education, is a dynamic and creative learning environment with a strong commitment to social and cultural engagement, and world-class research.

The academic study of religion in DCU takes place within a pluralist, multi-religious, secular, and interdisciplinary context, with internationally-recognised staff who have distinguished records in research and teaching.

Eligibility: Applicants must have a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies, Spirituality Studies, Theology, or Religious Studies, or cognate discipline, and an undergraduate degree at first-class honours level or at least 2.1 level in Theology, Religious Studies, or cognate discipline.
