“Beyond Fundamentalism: Theirs and Ours” A Community Conversation with Dr. Martin Marty


Suggested donation $10 per person, Students are free with valid student ID

Join renowned scholar and author Dr. Martin Marty as he defines what constitutes a fundamentalist movement and examines some of the most prominent examples of this in our world today. Dr. Marty will first survey the militant and often lethal challenges to civil order caused by fundamentalist movements in far away places such as India and the Middle East. Dr. Marty then will focus on the fundamentalist movements present in the United States, exploring the often militant, but seldom lethal challenges to believers in many faiths as well as non-believers whose lives are affected by hardline religious movement.  By holding up the mirror to fundamentalist movements here and abroad, he will set out to account for such movements, touch on the psychology of those involved, assess the two sets of challenges they bring, and discuss strategies for facing them and--one hopes--transcending them.  This community conversation is not designed to be an exercise in fundamentalist-bashing but rather an attempt to understand these movements and how communities respond to the challenges they pose.
