  • example: I have had a passion for researching and teaching about the Bahá'í Faith for more than half of my life. My fascination with American Bahá'í history and with the first American Bahá'í, Thornton Chase, caused me, in 1980, to switch my academic field from planetary science to history of religion in the United States. As I was finishing my doctorate in that field at Harvard University in 1990, I drew up plans to create a Bahá'í Studies institute that would offer courses, encourage research, and publish. Instead, I was hired by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of the United States to start a research office at our national Bahá'í headquarters in Wilmette, Illinois. Etc....
  • The Institute has a wonderfully diverse faculty. If you do not have a CV then a resume, or a more detailed biographical statement to complement your "About me" would be useful. Or, you can skip this optional step. We could also post a link to an online biography or a LinkedIn page, if one already exists.
