Has religious literacy become a necessary component of citizenship? In England and Quebec, the state school curriculum has been revised to include religious literacy. Do these programs share successful strategies that can succeed in other places? We are seeking faculty experts and doctoral candidates from diverse disciplines and personal backgrounds to improve religious literacy education. Can we accommodate differences while also identifying common ground that unifies across ethnic, religious, and partisan lines?
