Practicing what is Preached: Practices of Justice in a Multi-faith Context
BOOKING FOR THIS CONFERENCE IS NOW CLOSED
Lampeter, Wales, U.K. | 4-5 July 2019
The Centre for Interfaith Studies at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David is a forum that brings together academics and religious leaders to engage in critical reflection on interfaith studies and interfaith work.
Following on from the successful Third Annual Lampeter Interfaith Symposium in 2018, we are happy to announce that the theme for 2019 will be: “Practicing what is Preached: Practices of Justice in a Multi-faith Context”. Religious and spiritual commitments often drive human beings to engage in social action, promote justice, to be politically engaged, and to care for animals and the environment.
In this conference, we aim to address questions such as:
- What from within religious traditions motivates people to engage in these activities?
- In what ways are such commitments and responsibilities concretely expressed in practice?
- In what ways do faith communities seek to work together on matters of common interest?
The list of speakers will be announced later.
