Interfaith and Civic Engagement (RS-634)
Interfaith, as an art of association, is a practice that transforms individuals, communities and public life. In all such senses, it can be deeply political. Interfaith and Civic Engagement examines the often-overlooked political dynamics of interreligious work. Focusing on case studies – gleaned from students’ experiences, class discussions and assigned readings – this intensive seminar facilitates an academic and practical exploration of interfaith engagement as a civic and personal practice.
