IPI5/700—IIS Integrating Seminar: Valued Wisdoms, New Conversations

Instructor(s): Rev. Raymond C. Aldred

Instructor(s): Rabbi Dr. Laura Duhan Kaplan

This seminar addresses the “inter” in “inter-religious studies.” Together, we will respectfully explore multiple approaches to understanding connections between the beliefs and practices of four world religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Indigenous North American. Approaches may include deep ecumenism, awareness of social complexity, shared study of sacred text, and exploration of shared action on shared concerns. Students will gain ideas and practical experience to respectfully collaborate and address issues and challenges with peers across and among wisdom traditions.  This course is normally for students in their final year of the MA IIS.  Others should seek permission to register from the instructor and registrar.

Course dates: Friday/Saturday Nov 3-4; 17-18; & Dec 1-2 (10am – 4pm each day)
