Understanding Fundamentalism in the World Religions – Lake Havasu City

January 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

| Free

Whatever we think about fundamentalism, it is a very dynamic religious movement that attracts men and women alike. What are the features of religious fundamentalism in the traditions of Abrahamic religions? This presentation is about neither the “right” or “wrong” of fundamentalism, nor about “right” or “wrong” of particular religious traditions. We learn why fundamentalism emerged in the beginning of the 20th century, what characteristics fundamentalist religious traditions share and how they differ from each other.

Björn Krondorfer, Director of the Martin-Springer Institute at NAU and Endowed Professor of Religious Studies in Department of Comparative Cultural Studies. Field of expertise: religion, gender, culture, (post-) Holocaust studies, Western religions, religion, violence, and reconciliation. He has been invited to speak, present his research, and facilitate intercultural encounters in South Africa, Australia, South Korea, Finland, Poland, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Israel/Palestine, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Before coming to AZ, he has been a speaker at the Maryland Humanities Council for many years.
