Scholarship is as the heart of ICJS. In addition to providing the foundation for our public programming and fellowships, ICJS scholars are leaders in the academic field of interreligious studies and regularly offer interreligious expertise through speaking engagements and consultations with other organizations.
ICJS scholars and staff are available to speak on a wide array of topics to help increase interreligious literacy.
Service to the Field
ICJS scholars provide service to the broader academic field of interreligious studies through their writing, peer review, service to scholarly societies, and more.
ICJS is committed not only to providing scholarly resources, but to making the work of our scholars accessible to all in order to increase interreligious understanding.
Check out our Dabru Emet resource page in anticipation of an online forum in partnership with American Religion, beginning January 2021. As an organization devoted to inquiry around religion and religious difference, ICJS welcomed robust debate around Dabru Emet when it was published 20 years ago. In that same spirit, we have invited scholars and thinkers from around the world and across disciplines to revisit the statement. Contributors include Susannah Heschel, David Novak, Katharina von Kellenbach, Mark Silk, Malka Z. Simkovich, David Sandmel, and Victoria Barnett.
