About

Join world religion teachers from around North America for three days of study, discussion and inspiration! 

Knowledge of the world's religious traditions is vitally important for communication and understanding in our current world. CSEE's institute brings together university scholars and world religion teachers for study, discussion, activity sharing and camaraderie. Participants will leave with new knowledge, new ideas for the classroom, helpful resources and enduring contacts. Sessions will also include ways to incorporate the learned material into the classroom setting.

Key Presenters:

 

Ali Mian, Ph.D.

Dr. Ali Altaf Mian completed his Ph.D. in Islamic studies from Duke University in 2015. He is currently an assistant professor of religious studies at Seattle University. His two forthcoming books are: Muslims in South Asia and Surviving Modernity: Ashraf 'Ali Thanvi (1863-1943) and the Politics of Muslim Orthodoxy in Colonial India.

 

About the Presentation

Teaching Islam 

This 4-part series will consist of "Islam: The Basic," "Teaching Scripture and Mysticism," "Gender and Sexuality in Islam," and "Islam in America." Each session will furnish participants with academic perspectives as well as teaching resources. 

 

 

Daniel Castelo, Ph.D.

Daniel Castelo, Ph.D., is Professor of Dogmatic and Constructive Theology at Seattle Pacific University and Seminary. The author and editor of several books, his latest is Pentecostalism as a Christian Mystical Tradition (Eerdmans), which has recently been translated into Spanish.

 

About the Presentation

Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity has been narrated in many different ways since it rose to popularity in this country in the early 20th century. One unpopular way to narrate this tradition is to speak of it as a mystical tradition of Christianity; however, once one does this, new avenues of exploration and understanding become available. These possibilities help students of this tradition to appreciate it better as well as to locate it within an expression of religiosity that on some level is not that unusual at all.

 

Brian Blackmore - Westtown School, PA

Secondary School World Religions Teacher Brian Blackmore returns to the Institute this year, leading popular discussions on how to apply learned Institute material to the classroom setting.
