Event description

Description

The ‘Contemporary Issues in Religion’ series focuses on special topics in the study of religion and addresses a different issue or theme each Term. The four Term topics currently being offered in this series are: “Religious Fundamentalism, Extremism & Terrorism,” “Religion and Nonviolence,” “Other ’Isms,” and “New Religious Movements.”

The Term 4 Tauranga class will pick up where the Term 3 class left off, continuing with the topic of “Religious Fundamentalism, Extremism & Terrorism,” looking at Buddhist and Sikh Fundamentalism (Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Hindu extremism were covered in Term 3). The remainder of the course looks at the topic of “Religion and Nonviolence” and will explore peaceful forms of nonviolent religious practice, discussing key issues ranging from the Jain concept of ahiṃsā, the Hindu concept of satyāgraha, and the Jewish notion of Tikkun Olam, and others. It will also explore key historical figures like Mahātmā Gāndhī, Martin Luther King, Khān Abdul Ghaffār Khān, and others.
