In order to be able to work effectively with one another across faiths, we need to not only understand Islam, we need to be able to understand religions in its social/political environment. The purpose of this two session workshop is to provide strategies for engaging in deep, meaningful interfaith dialogue.
Azam Nizamuddin will facilitate this workshop. Mr. Nizamuddin is an attorney and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Theology at Loyola University Chicago where he teaches courses on Islam, and History of Islamic Thought. Mr. Nizamuddin has lectured extensively on Islamic theology and law, and on Islamic civilization to churches, synagogues, civic organizations, and federal agencies across the country. After September 11, he has attended conferences in Denmark, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Jordan, and Turkey to discuss East-West relations, and inter-religious dialogue.
