The Enhancing Life Project (University of Chicago) explores an essential aspiration of human beings that moves persons and communities into the future.  Given the profound expansion of human power through technology as well as advances in genetics, ecology, and other fields, the vulnerability and endangerment as well as the enhancement of life are dominant themes in the global age. The Enhancing Life Project aims to explore this rich but widely unexamined dimension of human aspiration and social life, and to increase knowledge so that life might be enriched.

The Project will support 15 research projects of advanced career scholars with $100,000 each and 20 research projects of early career scholars with $50,000 each. The grant runs Summer 2015 – Summer 2017. See our website for more information: enhancinglife.uchicago.edu. Applications are due February 1, 2015. The Project will support applications particularly but not exclusively in the following areas: Religious Thought/Theology/Philosophy; Philosophy of Biology/of Science/of Technology; Social Sciences (e.g., Anthropology/Law/ Political Science/Psychology/Sociology); Communications and Media Studies.
