This is an in-depth academic course addressing inter-faith relations from different disciplinary perspectives. Fully taught by recognised University of Cambridge experts in religious studies, the course is ideal for students, practitioners and faith leaders, as well as for the curious learners interested in inter-faith relations. 

Participants will be offered to a mixture of lectures, seminar discussions, interactive workshops and immersive exercises on a range of topics, from ethnographies of religion to the intersections of inter-faith relations with ecology, magic, violence, conflict resolution, migration, gender, religious conversion, astrobiology, poetry, law, empathy, martyrdom, archives, temporality, syncretism and more! 

Participants will also have a chance to engage in the Cambridge tradition of Scriptural Reasoning, visit a virtual photographic exhibition of Shared Sacred Landscapes, attend a film screening, participate in poetry and autoethnographic writing workshops, try out their own talents for visual research and create their own inter-faith archive! Each day will include about five hours of teaching time, punctuated by two breaks for lunch and coffee, and followed by an optional informal saloon.
