This lecture series will be presented by Dr. Jonathan Golden, Director of the Center on Religion, Culture, and Conflict at Drew University. He teaches in the Departments of Comparative Religion, Anthropology, and the Theological School. In these lectures, the core tenets, beliefs, practices, and cultures of Islam will be presented. The first lecture on May 17 will start with a brief historical survey of the roots evolution, and expansion of Islam. The second lecture on May 24 will examine the Muslim experience in the modern world, its internal dynamics within the “Muslim World” and in the West including the long history of Muslims in America.
Professor Golden also runs the Drew Institute on Religion and Conflict Transformation, which brings together young emerging leaders of different faiths from around the world for a seminar on leadership, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution.
