Religion, Identity, and Civil Society in the Era of Globalization

To Support: A faculty workshop series on religious pluralism in Los Angeles, leading to the eventual creation of a religious studies program at California State University, Los Angeles.

Religious literacy has become an essential skill for effective participation in the globalized marketplaces of cultural, political, and economic exchange. California State University Los Angeles, in partnership with Claremont Graduate University, is seeking funding from the NEH to sponsor a year-long curriculum development project on the theme of religion, identity, and civil society in the era of globalization. A series of seven major program meetings will take place throughout the year, including a year-long symposium entitled "Religion in Los Angeles, Religion in the Americas, Religion in the Era of Globalization." These program meetings will structure the participants' ongoing discussions about curriculum development with the goal of designing ten to twelve new or newly-reconceived courses incorporating the study of religion, as well as drafting a Mission Statement and Strategic Plan for an expanded interdisciplinary program in religious studies at CSULA.
