Drawing on the distinction between "mondalisation" (transnational cultural pluralism) and "globalisation" (global monocultural hegemony), this course explores the roles of religion and faith in constructing meaning and addressing systemic injustice. While focused through illustrative discussion of regional theologies in Asia and Africa and world-wide indigenous movements, the course also engages interreligious dialogue to heighten awareness of encounter and social reconciliation. The discussion of indigeneity addresses the experience of residential schools in Canada. Interrelations among religion, migration, and racialization of peoples are identified. Authors addressed include Elias Kifon Bongmba, David J. Bosch, Jose Casanova, Edmund Chia, Glenn Sean Coulthard, Robin Dunbar, Pope Francis, Sam George, Jehu Hanciles, Stan Chu llo, Rosella Kinoshameg, Paul V. Kollman, Leo D. Lefebure, Bernard Lonergan, Anselm Min, V. Y. Mudimbe, John Milloy, Richard Neibuhr, Ronald Niezen, ldara Otu, Raimon Panikkar, Peter Phan, Paul Ricoeur, Paul Robson, Robert J. Schreiter, Heather Walton, and David E. Wilhite.
