Dialogical Theology: A Conversation with Wolfram Weisse
November 4, 2019
12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Location: New North Theology Conference Room Map
Interreligious dialogue has gained central importance during the last 20 years in the academic as well as in the public arena. A strongly dialogically oriented theology was developed in recent years in the context of a five-year research project called ReDi: Religion and Dialogue in Modern Societies, housed at the Academy of World Religions, Hamburg University, Germany. In an interdisciplinary and internationally comparative approach, researchers in Scandinavia, England, Germany, and the United States from different religious traditions studied interreligious dialogue and produced an approach called dialogical theology.
This presentation will feature Wolfram Weisse, who led the ReDi project. He will discuss the design of the project and then focus on the approach of dialogical theology, explaining its concept and highlighting the main results of the research, namely a newly developed dialogical interreligious hermeneutics.
Lunch will be served.
