Raising Asian Voices in Interreligious Dialogue


Raising Asian Voices in Interreligious Dialogue

Please join us for a talk about the importance of promoting inclusivity and diversity in interreligious dialogue and studies. The panelists will discuss the necessity to raise and embrace Asian perspectives in meaningful dialogue that fosters understanding and respect.


Dr. Martin Nguyễn, PhD
Professor of Islamic Studies, Fairfield University


Dr. Martin Nguyen’s work revolves around Muslim theology, ethics, spirituality, Qur’anic studies, and the intersection of race and religion. His current research focuses on theological responses to global mass displacement and modern structural racism. He is the author of Modern Muslim Theology: Engaging God and the World with Faith and Imagination (Rowman & Little Field, 2019), which presents a contemporary theology rooted in the religious imagination.
