Contending Modernities depends on the support of individual donors and foundations to generate new knowledge in service of the common good.

Private Donors

The Kroc Institute gratefully acknowledges the key role that the following individuals have played in supporting Contending Modernities through their generous donations:

  • Mark Gallogly and Elizabeth Strickler

Two major grants have enabled the Science and the Human Person working group to advance a global, interreligious and intercultural conversation about science, ethics, and the human future. For its part, the “Advancing Scientific and Theological Literacy in Madrasas Discourses” project is made possible through a generous grant towards religious engagement. We are grateful to the following foundations for their support of Contending Modernities:

University of Notre Dame Support

Contending Modernities thanks the Office of the Provost and Notre Dame Research for their generous support through a Strategic Research Investment. This initiative provided the start-up costs for three professorships that have furthered Notre Dame’s expertise in Islamic Studies, Islamic Law, and Catholicism and the Global South. The appointments went to Emmanuel Katongole, Ebrahim Moosa, and Mun’im Sirry.
