Interreligious Education and Pedagogy Project

From 2015 to 2019, the GTU engaged in the Interreligious Education & Pedagogy Project (IEPP), a four-year effort exploring the current state of interreligious education in seminaries and theological schools. Launched at a time when the GTU PhD program was being revised to be more expressly interreligious, IEPP hosted a series of ongoing conversations among Jewish, Muslim, and Christian scholars and leaders in this emerging field.

As part of the project, which was funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, the GTU’s Judith Berling authored an extensive report mapping “The Current State of Interreligious Education,” based on interviews with a range of scholars at institutions across the country and a review of published literature in the field. Project co-director Heidi Hadsell, former president of Hartford Seminary, and Najeeba Syeed edited a critical volume, Experiments in Empathy for our Time, currently in press, and the project also offered a workshop on Interreligious Pedagogies at the 2018 AAR Annual Meetings in Denver.

Follow the link below to visit the project’s website, where you can find a wealth of information and resources on interreligious teaching and learning. The site includes a project overview and a searchable version of Berling’s “The Current State of Interreligious Learning,” as well as an annotated list of resources, articles, and course syllabi on interreligious education and pedagogy.
