An Interview with Dr. Olivia Wilkinson

Olivia Wilkinson is an independent research consultant and sociologist, working at the intersection of the sociology of religion and humanitarian/development studies. She was also a contributor to Faith in the Story: Trialogues for Enhancing Religious Literacy, a multi-year series of workshops at the Ansari Institute that brought together media professionals, faith leaders, and scholars of religion to improve the conversation about religion in the public sphere. In this conversation with Ansari Institute staff member Rebekah Go, Wilkinson discusses what is known - from a sociological standpoint - about religion and international development and how much more can be learned through thoughtful study and research.

Global Religious Observances Calendar

Religious literacy and cultural awareness are important skills. It’s helpful to know about the traditions and celebrations that are important to students and colleagues so you can provide accommodations and support diversity, equity, and inclusion.

With that in mind, the Ansari Institute maintains this calendar of global religious observances. We want it to be a helpful resource for your university or workplace. Please use it as a resource to build awareness and promote inclusion and representation.
