The religious landscape of America is changing. In the past fifty years, new immigrants have arrived from all over the world seeking political freedom and economic prosperity. They have come with their cultural and religious traditions, their Qur’ans and Bhagavad Gitas, their rituals, prayers, and forms of mediation, their songs, dances, and arts. They have put down roots in American soil and created community centers and sacred spaces.
The Case Initiative
With the dilemmas and disputes of our multi-religious society as our primary texts, the Pluralism Project integrates the case method into teaching and learning about religion. How might this participant-centered, discussion-based pedagogy change the way we teach—and how students learn?
New Research Report: Adaptation and Action at the Grassroots
Compiled from the work of Pluralism Project Summer Research Associates, Adaptation and Action at the Grassroots: Religious and Interfaith Responses to COVID-19 and Structural Racism in the U.S. offers a glimpse of grassroots faith responses to the dual crises of COVID-19 and structural racism. While underdocumented, religious and interfaith groups play a vital role in cities and towns across the U.S. Adaptation and Action at the Grassroots is a selective portrait, with a special focus on Boston-based efforts.
