Woolf Institute - 2017 Interreligious Understanding Today (Online Course)

The Woolf Institute is delighted to announce the launch of its second new online course for 2017 – Interreligious Understanding Today will provide a forum in which participants will:

• explore different kinds of interreligious understanding between Abrahamic religions and beyond;
• compare the ways in which such understanding can be achieved in different cultural and political contexts in the world (US, Asia, Europe);
• study the relationship between secularity and interreligious understanding;
• and explore the ways in which the challenges to interreligious understanding posed by religious nationalisms and extremisms can be addressed.

The course is multidisciplinary, engaging with religious studies and sociological, historical and philosophical approaches.

The e-learning approach offers individuals the opportunity to interact with fellow participants from all over the world. Many participants from across Europe and around the world – including Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, as well as Australia, Canada, China, Kenya, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United States to name but a few – have engaged with our e-learning courses.

The closing date for applications is 17 March 2017. The course commences on 3 April 2017.
The course fee is £325. A limited number of bursaries are available.
