CFP: Living in a Religiously Plural World (Interreligious Studies Press)

Living in a Religiously Plural World: Voices from Secondary Education and Community Youth Organizations on Interreligious Engagement

Edited by Lucinda Mosher, Christine Gallagher, & Axel Takacs

Interreligious Studies Press, an imprint of the Journal of Interreligious Studies, co-published by Hebrew College, Boston University School of Theology, and Hartford Seminary, seeks to produce an edited collection of essays concerning curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular interreligious/interfaith engagement in secondary education and community youth organizations. This volume is in partnership with the Institute for Islamic, Christian, and Jewish Studies and its Teachers Fellowship program directed by Christine Gallagher.

Volumes on the theory, practice, and pedagogies of interreligious/interfaith studies at the undergraduate and graduate level (including divinity schools and seminaries) are plentiful. These include, inter alia, Interreligious/Interfaith Studies (Beacon Press, 2018), Critical Perspectives on Interreligious Education (Brill, 2020), Interreligious Studies (Baylor University Press, 2020), Deep Understanding for Divisive Times (Interreligious Studies Press, 2020), and Decolonial Futures (Lexington Books, 2021). However, the editors of IRSP notice a relative dearth of scholarship on pedagogies and practices of teaching interreligiously at the secondary education level and age group, including activities led by community youth organizations. This volume will begin to fill this gap.
