New Social Media and Intercultural and Interreligious Understanding

This project explored the relevance of new social media for intercultural and interreligious understanding, with a focus on how Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other similar platforms foster a vibrant exchange of ideas and advance knowledge and collaboration in our increasingly diverse world. Fellows conducted a survey of best practices covering Georgetown, other universities, scholars, faith leaders, and more sources, and made recommendations for taking advantage of new social media to promote dialogue and understanding between religions and cultures. Prof. Michael Nelson, a visiting professor in the Communication, Culture, and Technology program at Georgetown, served as the faculty advisor.
