Dr. Lily Vuong will be a senior fellow at the Centre for Advanced Studies Beyond Canon

Dr. Lily Vuong will be a senior fellow at the Centre for Advanced Studies Beyond Canon: Heterotopias of Religious Authority in Ancient Christianity at the Universität Regensburg (Regensburg, Germany) for the 2021-2022 academic year. Generously funded by the Deutsch Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) the institute houses researchers from various fields (theologians, historians, philologists, archaeologists, art historians, etc.) with the goal of examining “apocryphal” traditions as heterotopias, i.e. as “effective spaces,” serving as “abutments” in late ancient Christianity. Specifically, the Beyond Canon Collaborative Research Group (CRG) will focus on literary traditions beyond the biblical canon, on their diverse, often material forms of expression and starting points in “lived” and “popular” religion, and on their underestimated significance in the ritual life of the churches. Dr. Vuong will spend the year working on her new project on the Syriac Protevangelium of James.
