Religion, Global Issues, and Globalization
Central to global issues and globalization is the breaking down of boundaries (and barriers), whether they be religious, national, ethnic, ecological, economic, technological, or others. This symposium will address how religion affects and is affected by a wide range of global issues and globalization, historically and in the present. Global issues that may be considered include economic inequality and justice, the environment and the anthropocene, migration and immigration, refugees, interfaith dialogue and relations, identity and assimilation, among many other possibilities.
The symposium will take place from 8:30 – 5:00 on Thursday and Friday, February 16-17, in the Harper Center 3029. The symposium is open to the public.
