 Upcoming Dialogue Programs

 What We Believe: Understanding Religious and Cultural Identities

Tuesday, June 7 – Noon to 1:00 p.m.

Dr. Maeve Callan has been studying and teaching religion for more than 25 years. Using this knowledge and experience, as well as interviews with leaders and representatives from Iowa’s diverse religions, she’ll discuss religious and cultural identities. She’ll touch on how community members can unwittingly convey insensitivity, either through silence or unknowingly using offensive terms. Dr. Callan will also consider how the media impacts people’s perceptions of religious and cultural identities, as well as the media’s representation of religious diversity in Iowa and beyond.


July & August – Summer Break

Fall Dialogues – TBA
