Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme

 
Gallery of alumni and tutors

A cohort of 15 participants from five continents completed our online Academic Summer School in interfaith relations. Over the course of two weeks in August 2021, the group journeyed through hell and into outer space, from the comfort of their own homes.

Content covered key Religion and Global Challenges themes such as environmentalism. A workshop with materials from the Scripture and Violence project was well received, and participants also experienced Scriptural Reasoning with a sample of creation texts.

The syllabus included interactive exercises, encouraging everyone to write poetry, contribute to an interfaith archive, and generate an interfaith music playlist. Participants also experimented with ethnographic methods, sketching the presence of religion in a chosen location; and reflected on different representations of martyrs.

We look forward to sharing some of their writing here in the coming months, as we continue to collaborate our Summer School alumni.
