Toleration in Comparative Perspective Conference

Tuesday, January 19th 2021 to Saturday, January 23rd 2021
Online Event, 2400 Ridge Rd Berkeley, CA 94709

The Center for Democracy, Toleration and Religion is pleased to work in conjunction with Reset Dialogues on Civilizations to host the conference “Toleration in Comparative Perspective: Concepts, Practices, Documents” from January 19-23, 2021, over Zoom. The conference  gathers scholars to talk about the ways in which religious toleration has been articulated and practiced in places and periods outside of modern “Western” history. Each day will feature a thematic panel — on spaces, philosophy, law, political theory and textual interpretation — that brings together speakers from across fields and disciplines. The conference will begin with a keynote address by Professor Denis Lacorne, of Sciences Po.

The conference is open to the public, and we encourage anyone who is interested to register through this link.

The GTU's Sam Shonkoff will be presenting at this conference. We are delighted that our 2021 Singh lecturer,  Dr. Karen Barkey is an organizer of this event. We invite you to this year's Surjit Singh Lecture on April 5, 2021 at 12 pm PT. For more information and to register, click here.
