This seminar examines the historical contexts, central approaches, and contemporary possibilities of interreligious engagement. Students explore major historical events, organizations, and trends; contemporary approaches (including religious literacy, interfaith leadership, and interfaith/interreligious studies); and new models of interreligious engagement that challenge existing paradigms and focus primarily on fostering justice. Throughout all, critical attention is paid to how race, gender, and religious supremacy shape interreligious engagement. 

Note: Enrollment limited to sixteen students.
