Globalization, Gender, and Peacebuilding

The Future of Interfaith Dialogue
  • By Kwok Pui-lan
Product Description
Religion has played an enormous role in contemporary politics and in the discussions of war and peace, identity and tradition, authoritarianism and democracy. In the Madeleva Lecture for 2011 Kwok Pui-lan, one of the most prominent postcolonial feminist theologians, discusses the future of interfaith dialogue. She shows how globalization has impacted interreligious relationships and dialogue and argues that the future of interfaith dialogue must include those marginalized voices that have not been invited to the table, especially women. In discussing issues on gender and interfaith dialogue, she explores concerns that have been raised by women, such as the Orientialist construction of religious difference, reciprocity, and misappropriation, and multiple identities and hybridity. Finally, a central focus for interfaith dialogue is peacebuilding, and in this context Dr. Kwok explores the concept of polydoxy, which goes beyond the logic of the One to embrace multiplicity and relationality.
