RELI 160 - (HP) Religion, Secularism & Conflict Resolution

Semester Hours: 3

Fall, Spring

An essential tenet of Religion and Interfaith Studies is not tolerance but involves seeing the very dignity of different secular-religious cultures. Furthermore, peace building efforts world-wide aim to operationalize the resources religions possess for conflict resolution. However, recent works in the field of Peace Studies go beyond treating religion as either a force for violence or peace, by drawing a wider geo-political frame. This course will therefore broach Conflict Resolution by drawing a broader theoretical context that includes questioning both religious revelation and secular reason – and in so doing chart a history of secular liberal peace-building to explore its limits and possible alternatives.
