Dialogue in the 21st Century | Hartford Seminary

Dialogue in the 21st Century (DI-540)

Guided by your professor—and informed by reading, viewing, or listening to a range of materials and engaging in various activities made available through a Canvas website—you will be encouraged to develop collegial relationships—indeed, a sense of community and friendship across religious, cultural, social, and gender lines—as you explore in depth the principles, models, and methods of dialogue in a pluralistic world, then are helped to put these into practice in a context of diversity. Uniquely, as it introduces dialogue theory and practice, it also familiarizes you with many members of the Hartford Seminary faculty; it also enables you to gain (or review) basic understanding of the tenets and practices of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—because such knowledge is foundational for a majority of the courses in the Hartford Seminary curriculum. (Rest assured that the course will not ignore other religions; however, it will engage them with less depth.) This course is open to all students; auditors are welcome. For students admitted into the Online MA program, DI-540 will fulfill the DI-530 requirement. All other students, residing more than 200 miles from campus, may petition the Academic Policy Committee for DI-540 to fulfill the DI-530 requirement.
