12:00 – 1:30pm EDT


The event will be streamed live on our Facebook page


An online workshop devoted to Islam and Pluralism that will gather prominent scholars from the perspective of theology, philosophy and law. The focus of the discussion will be: the status of salvation and truth in Islam, the legal status of the Other, and the current tensions/intersections between legal and theological status of the Other.
The webinar will be held in preparation for an upcoming project, The Theologies of Otherness, which will convene a team of international scholars to provide original insights on the often-ignored transformations that modern pluralism has forced upon all religions, challenging their theology and practices.
The project will be developed by Reset Dialogues on Civilizations (US and Italy), the Center for the Study of Developing Societies (Delhi), the University of Birmingham (UK), the Berkley Center at Georgetown University, and the Foundation for Religious Sciences in Bologna and Palermo (Italy).

Opening remarks: Giancarlo Bosetti (Chair, Reset DOC) and Jonathan Laurence (Executive Director, Reset Dialogues)
