Considering the Future of Interreligious Dialogue Through Reflecting on Its Past and Present.”

Taking anthropological and experiential perspectives, Father Bucko will examine his own experiences with peoples of other religious traditions and the prospects of interreligious dialogue in academic settings. The talk focuses on Lakota, Turks and Greeks.
