Mobile Seminar at Princeton University Art Museum Connects CTI Projects on Migration with Religion & Violence
Members in the Spring Research Workshop on Religion & Violence took part in a Mobile Seminar at the Princeton University Art Museum. Leading the Mobile Seminar was Juliana Ochs Dweck, the Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Academic Engagement at the museum. Focused on the exhibit, “Miracles on the Border: Retablos of Mexican Migrants to the United States,” the seminar connected CTI’s research on migration with the current workshop on religion and violence, both part of a five-year Inquiry on Global Concerns.

CTI Launches New Podcast
CTI has recently launched a new podcast based on the work of the Center, called Theology Matters. The double meaning of the title is intentional, as it explores both the matters or topics of theology as well as the question of how theology matters in the contemporary world. Each season will explore in depth one of the issues of global concern CTI is examining, beginning with Season 1 on Religion & Violence. The first four episodes are already available, including conversations with CTI members Wolfgang Palaver, Lisa le Roux, Ephraim Meir, and Antti Pentikäinen.
