REL 311 - Interreligious Encounters

Description
This course draws from the emerging field of interfaith studies and aims to bring theoretical models for understanding the nature and consequences of interreligious encounter into dialogue with data from historical and contemporary instances of encounter. It will provide students a historical framework for examining the encounter of religious traditions over time, familiarize them with typologies of encounter, and help them think critically about the nature of pluralism, tolerance, and interfaith dialogue.
