The Importance of Religious and Cultural Literacy in a Cosmopolitan World

Special Event

Ali Asani, Professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic Religion and Cultures; former Director of the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Islamic Studies Program at Harvard University

Our world is marked by difference. The inability to engage with and understand these differences has led to polarizations, tensions and conflict in many societies. In recent decades, these conflicts have been particularly acute and tragic when they are framed in religious terms. Illiteracy about the nature of religion has led to political climates that are crippling intellectually and threatening to the pluralistic fabric of society. This talk will discuss the importance of promoting literacy about the relationship between religion and culture as one of the essential pre-requisites for the well-being of societies and the project of democracy globally.

Cosponsored with Habib University
