York St John University Professor joins Resident Research Seminar on Religion & Violence at the Centre Of Theological Inquiry, Princeton
Professor Pauline Kollontai has been offered and accepted a resident scholar membership of the Spring Research Seminar at the Centre of Theological Inquiry (CTI), Princeton, which will take place from mid-January to mid-May 2019. The theme of the Seminar is on ‘Religion and Violence,’ which runs across the whole academic year and involves two teams of international scholars from various global locations, who represent a variety of various academic disciplines and religious perspectives or none. Each scholar will participate in the collaborative inquiry on the theme of ‘Religion and Violence,’ informed by their own individual own research project. Pauline’s research is focusing on minority rights in contemporary Israel through a critique of the praxis of the Jewish values of Ve’ahabhath le-Re’akha (love of neighbour) and Va’ahavtem et ha-Ger (love of stranger).
CTI have been running resident seminars for several years on global issues that concern all regions and religions of the world, and not only scholars working in theology but also in the humanities and sciences. The key aim is to generate fresh thinking on global concerns through the power of interdisciplinary inquiry and disseminate this thinking through various platforms and at various levels of societies.
