CEDRR for Students
Are you MUNI students already researching religion in a digital environment, and/or using computational or quantitative methods from a social science or historical perspective? Or are you just considering focusing your student research in this area?
Do you want to be part of a community platform of like-minded colleagues and have the opportunity to informally learn digital research methods together or consult on your projects?
Are you willing to share and develop your research and your experience with digital methods in a friendly circle of colleagues?
If so, take the opportunity to become a student member of the Centre for the Digital Research of Religion (CEDRR) at the Department for the Study of Religions.
What "CEDRR for Students" offers:
- A space to share the joys and sorrows of digital research group feedback on your project
- one-on-one consultation on research projects and career/graduate profiles
- the opportunity to participate in tutorials and workshops organised by CEDRR
- easier access to CEDRR facilities (community of experts, library, selected computing resources)
What student membership of CEDRR entails:
- working on your own research project (usually a graduate thesis) and sharing work-in-progress outputs
- participation in CEDRR team meetings (about 2 to 3 times per semester)

CEDRR is an umbrella for research projects characterised by predominantly "digital" methods. "CEDRR for students" is created as an investment in the development of the research and career potential of students whose projects coincide with this theoretical-methodological orientation.
So-called "computational methods" require (not only) considerable time costs from students to master them. On the other hand, they are able to naturally connect research from very different fields through a specific "research imagination" and "advanced computer literacy". There is thus potential for practical sharing in the space of a virtual "theoretical-methodological" workshop.
In this sense, CEDRR for Students is intended as an extra-curricular platform for peer learning and deepening research skills used to realise student projects (mostly theses).
