We, at UWTSD’s Interfaith Doctorate Programme, are hosting our first online conference on the 11th and 12th February specifically aimed at Post Graduate students who are working and/or researching in interfaith contexts.
Our reason for wanting to hold such an event is twofold: to give an opportunity for PG students to explore various practical aspects of interfaith work and study, and to encourage them to create a strong network of international peers from a range of disciplinary contexts.
The conference will be interactive, comprising of panel discussions, ‘break-out’ discussion rooms, Q&As, networking sessions, quizzes and more.
Day one’s sessions will be facilitated by PG students themselves, both from our University and other universities around the world, as we learn from each other’s experiences and research specialities. These interactive sessions will focus on issues such as the intrafaith implications of interfaith work, the importance of intersectionality and the power dynamics involved in working with minority religions.
The second day will welcome esteemed scholars and well-established interfaith practitioners from various international contexts (representing organisations such as KIACIID, the UN and Tanenbaum). These session have been designed to be as valuable for the attendees as possible, touching upon topics such as networking in the interfaith field, personal well-being, publication of research and professional development.
If you, or any of your Post Graduate students would like to join us for this free online event, please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
We would love you see you there!
