THEO 490 - W01 Leadership Religions Workplace - - W - - - - 1730 - 2115 JRC 246
CRN: 43065 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Fred Dominic Longo, Teresa J. Rothausen This course develops in students the knowledge, skill, and practical wisdom to be interreligious leaders in today's world. Interreligious leadership is energetic engagement with the religious diversity that characterizes our societies and communities today. Interreligious leaders engage their own and other religious traditions to find wisdom and other spiritual resources that fuel their inner and outer work. They pay attention with curiousity and appreciation to religious differences, and then proactively build mutual understanding across these differences through dialogue. Through interaction with guest speakers, community engagement activities, case studies, role plays, a range of course readings and videos, and reflective writing to integrate learning, this bridge course will widen religious literacy well beyond the Christian tradition, foster practical leadership skills, and expose students to a range of professional scenarios where interreligious issues generate challenge and opportunity. Drawing on the fields of spirituality, leadership development, interreligious dialogue, comparative theology, and conflict resolutions, this course prepares students to contribute to human flourishing in a more just society through successful and satisfying professional lives in which they are engaged with their own and other's religious identities,commitments and practices. Practical examples and cases will come from a range of industries, business functions, and professions, such as health care, manufacturing, technology, education, public policy, law, engineering, marketing and finance.

THEO 461 - W01 Comp. Theo. of Sex/Gender/Body M T W R - - - 0900 - 1200 MCH 117
CRN: 10272 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Fred Dominic Longo This course provides an introduction to theological reflection on sex, gender, and the body in the Christian tradition and the Islamic religious traditions. It is a comparative theological course in that it juxtaposes texts of diverse perspectives from these two religious traditions in order to seek deeper understanding of sex, gender, and the body. This “Bridge 2 course” prompts students to reflect on their vocation as a sexual, gendered, and embodied being, and to do so interreligiously. While the course will take into consideration how theology has collaborated with patriarchal, imperial, ethnic, heteronormative, and socio‐economic powers, the central focus will be on contemporary feminist, queer, and post‐colonial theologies that attempt to undermine oppressive systems in Asian, Latin American, North American, Middle Eastern, and/or other contexts. This course also fulfills the Human Diversity core requirement and is crosslisted with Women’s Studies. Prerequisites: THEO101, THEO 2xx or THEO 3xx, and PHIL115
