Jamie Price is presently Research Professor in the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, and Executive Director of the Sargent Shriver Peace Institute. He received his A.B. from Lawrence University and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the Divinity School at the University of Chicago. Professor Price has been a faculty member in the Department of Philosophy at Georgia State University, and the School of Theology and Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America. As a Director at The Shriver Center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, he developed the Shriver Peaceworker Program, a two-year graduate leadership program for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers that integrates graduate study, community service, and ethical reflection. He also developed and ran CLEAR Corps, a national AmeriCorps program that works in economically distressed communities across the country to help families protect their children from childhood lead poisoning. Beginning in 2004, he began to develop the Sargent Shriver Peace Institute, which affiliated with the Carter School in 2006. Professor Price is currently working on research and writing projects focusing on the theory and practice of method in peacebuilding, the role of religious imagination in creating and transforming culture wars, and the philosophy and peacebuilding achievements of Sargent Shriver. He has recently completed a manuscript for a book titled Religious Imagination and Political Conflict in America: On Spiritualizing Politics without Politicizing Religion.
