Teaching Critical Religious Studies in the World Religions Public Sphere (Book Section)
Title: Teaching Critical Religious Studies in the World Religions Public Sphere
Author: Henry Goldschmidt
Editor: Jenna Gray-Hildenbrand
Editor: Beverley McGuire
Editor: Hussein Rashid
Abstract: This essay explores a tension in the Interfaith Center of New York’s religious diversity education programs for K-12 teachers, social workers, and police officers. These programs work to subvert and exceed the limitations of “world religions” pedagogy, while nevertheless meeting the needs of partner organizations and professional audiences who tend to think about religion in such terms—helping these professionals work effectively in the world religions public sphere. The essay outlines the theoretical frameworks, pedagogic principles, and teaching tactics that have helped the author navigate this tension. It discusses Michel Foucault’s arguments about power and knowledge. It stresses the importance of teaching about the diversity within all faith traditions, as well as the personal stories and political projects that connect those traditions to people’s lives. It argues that one way to do so is by facilitating panel discussions with diverse religious leaders, and suggests guidelines for structuring such conversations.
