Int’l Conference: Religion and Social Innovation – Oct. 27-29, 2013
Conference on Religions and Social Innovation, an International Conference at the University of St. Michael’s College, Toronto, Canada.
Fr Madden Auditorium, Carr Hall, Room 100, 100 St Joseph Street, Toronto, ON
27-29 October 2013 A common received narrative, particularly in the West, is that religions typically represent forces for conservatism in politics and civic society. Yet, in an increasingly globalized world, religious persons and movements have responded in creative ways to the challenges of various pluralist and secularist social orders. They have also inspired new political, economic or social initiatives from within their own religious frameworks. This conference will intend to highlight the various ways that religious traditions and religiously-inspired movements have served and continue to serve as forces for social innovation.
