Applications are now being accepted for the online course Interreligious Understanding Today commencing 2 April 2018

As we live in an age of increasing plurality but also instability, the need for interreligious understanding, which is grounded on solid academic research and in touch with the realities of interreligious encounter, is greater than ever.

The Woolf Institute is delighted to announce that applications are now being accepted for the online course, Interreligious Understanding Today, which will provide a forum where participants will:

·     explore different kinds of interreligious understanding between Abrahamic religions and beyond;

·     compare the ways in which such understanding can be achieved in different cultural and political contexts in the world (US, Asia, Europe);

·     study the relationship between secularity and interreligious understanding;

·     and explore the ways in which the challenges to interreligious understanding posed by religious nationalisms and extremisms can be addressed.

The course is multidisciplinary, engaging with religious studies and sociological, historical and philosophical approaches.

The provision of online study offers individuals the opportunity to interact with fellow participants from all over the world.

The closing date for applications is 16 March 2018. The course commences on 2 April 2018.

 

The course fee is £325. Bursaries are available.
