Profile

This individual is not a direct affiliate of the Berkley Center.

Maureen Fiedler, S.L., is the host of Interfaith Voices, an hour-long weekly radio show that airs on National Public Radio. The show began in mid-September 2001 as a reaction to September 11, when Fiedler gathered a panel of religious figures to reflect on the terrorist attack. Interfaith Voices now probes the influence of religion upon our society and culture. In particular, the show paints a picture of the country’s religious landscape through personal narratives of religious Americans, such as African-American Mormons, Muslim feminists, and evangelical environmentalists. In addition to her dedication to interfaith dialogue, Fiedler is a frequent speaker on peace, justice, and women’s issues; she also blogs for the National Catholic Reporter online. Fiedler is a Sister of Loretto and holds a Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University.
