Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Conversations: Understanding the Field of Interreligious Studies with Lucinda Mosher
Thursday, March 24
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CDT
Zoom (Registration required)
Join Executive Director Wendy Goldberg for this Open Conversation with author, scholar, and interfaith thought leader, Dr. Lucinda Mosher, about the history, challenges, and future of interreligious studies.
The field of interreligious studies fosters scholarship that engages two or more religious traditions at a time. This multidisciplinary approach brings together the humanities and social sciences, employing relational, intersectional, experiential, and dialogical methodologies to examine the interrelationship of individuals and groups.
Lucinda will also discuss her upcoming book, The Georgetown Companion to Interreligious Studies, which offers unique perspectives on the nature of this emerging discipline through essays by an international roster of practitioners of or experts on Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Ruism, Humanism, and African, North American, and South American Indigenous traditions.
Dr Lucinda Mosher is a faculty associate in chaplaincy and interreligious studies, codirector of the Master of Arts in Chaplaincy program, and senior scholar for Executive and Professional Education at Hartford International University for Religion and Peace. She is also senior editor of the Journal of Interreligious Studies and rapporteur for the Building Bridges Seminar, an international dialogue of Christian and Muslim scholars under the stewardship of Georgetown University. She holds a doctor of theology degree from the General Theological Seminary.
