Prof. dr. Anne-Marie Korte, professor of Religion, Gender and Modernity at Utrecht University (the Netherlands), is the initiator and coordinator of this project. She successfully applied for funding for the project with the Netherlands Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO). Recently she also took the initiative of establishing the journal Religion and Gender, which is the first international refereed online journal dedicated to the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective.

Dr. Adriaan van Klinken, Lecturer in African Christianity at University of Leeds (UK), and previously a PhD student at Utrecht University, assisted Anne-Marie Korte in developing this project and the grant application and is currently involved as a co-coordinator. He is also the managing editor of the journal Religion and Gender.

Jorien Copier (MA) serves as the project assistant. She obtained her Liberal Arts degree at Utrecht University with a major in social/cultural anthropology and religious studies. She continued with a Research Masters in Religious Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Her masters thesis focused on contemporary religious miracle accounts. At the moment she is writing a research proposal to continue this research.
