Beyond Tolerance – Teaching Interfaith Understanding to the Next Generation – Food for the Soul
May 15 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm EDT
The America of the 21st century is the world’s most religiously diverse nation. Americans encounter religious diversity at work and school, in their neighborhoods, and often even at home in their families. Americans are challenged to engage with religious difference and the particularity of the religious other on a daily basis.
The talk by Dr. Rosenhagen presents the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Interfaith Fellows Program as a new interreligious teaching model in its wider American context.
Ulrich Rosenhagen is Director of the Center for Religion and Global Citizenry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received his PhD from the University of Heidelberg in 2012 and is author of Brudermord, Freiheitsdrang, Weltenrichter: Religiöse Kommunikation und öffentliche Theologie in der amerikanischen Revolutionsepoche (De Gruyter, 2015). He edited Nostra Aetate and the Future of Interreligious Dialogue with Charles Cohen and Paul Knitter (Orbis, 2017). He has written on Jewish-Christian relations, Social Protestantism, interreligious dialogue, and the theologian Rudolf Otto. He is an ordained Lutheran pastor (ELCA) who served the German community in South Florida from 2003 to 2006 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church of Coral Gables.
