Dr. Laura Shneidman, Assistant Professor of Psychology (PLU), Dr. Rebekah Richert (PI, UC Riverside) and Dr. Elizabeth Davis (UC Riverside) have been awarded a five-year grant from the Templeton Foundation to join the Developing Belief Network. The network is a research initiative designed to bring together a network of scholars interested in cross-cultural study of the development of religious cognition and behavior. Their project will explore how religious beliefs are learned in childhood and how children conceptualize religious beings. Dr. Shneidman’s specific area of focus will be on children in Mayan communities on the Yucatec Peninsula and in Mexico City.
