More Details:

Associating faith traditions with violence by perpetrators and their critics is one of the key issues confronting the world today.

Almost weekly, an event takes place around the world that sends social media into frenzy, with the result being further differentiation between religious traditions, and estrangement of religious adherents who are placed under increasing scrutiny and suspicion.

This conference seeks to engage this pressing social issue.

By engaging with the sacred texts and traditions of the great religions of the world, it is hoped that strategies may emerge that demonstrate that religion is not the problem, but indeed has much to contribute to the solution of the current state of affairs.

The conference will feature two key speakers:

  • Professor Zeki Saritoprak (John Carroll University) and
  • Professor Daniel Smith-Christopher (Loyola Marymount University).

Both are highly credentialed in regards to inter-faith dialogue and commitments to peace.

The conference will also feature panel sessions, workshops, and papers from other contributors.
