Engaging religion for the common good
In this spring 2021 virtual course, which is free and open to the public, participants will explore narrative theory to examine the role of religion and race in local and global conflicts. Racialized narratives of religions can create conflict, while certain narratives of race and religion can heal and form community.
This multi-year series of workshops will bring media professionals, faith leaders, and scholars of religion together in a "trialogue" that will help improve religious literacy. The first workshop, in June 2021, will deal with major stories from the US, including COVID-19, racial justice protests, and the 2020 presidential election.
