Can We Talk About Religion?
117 Pleasant St SE
Minneapolis, MN 55455
Religion provides meaning and identity for some people, and is a source of conflict and consternation for others. What concerns you about religion? Is this something we can talk about in a secular, public institution? If so, how do we talk about it? Is anything off-limits? These questions (and others) will be discussed by CLA faculty Kirsten Fischer (History) and Jeanne Kilde (Religious Studies) with students in the next installment of the "Can We Talk?" series.
About the series
Can We Talk? is a new event series that gives students and faculty a chance to discuss today’s issues in an informal, casual setting. Led by CLA professors, these conversations will invite participants to share knowledge, ideas, and perspectives on topics that often divide us.
CLA professors will kick-off conversations by sharing differing perspectives on specific topics. Then they'll invite students to join the discussion. You'll have a chance to ask questions, offer counter points, and dig deeper to understand each other's points of view.
Yes, there will be snacks! Sweet and savory treats will be served, along with hot and cold beverages.
