2019 URI Honors Colloquium - JUDITH WEISENFELD- NOV 5
Religion and race have been entangled throughout American history, with religion contributing to the production of ideas about race and ideas about race shaping the religious possibilities and theological claims of differently racialized peoples. Moreover, these intertwined constructions of race and religion have developed in a context in which both contribute significantly to understandings of American national identity and citizenship as these have changed over time. In this talk I consider the broad scope of particularly American interactions between religion and race, explore historical cases of religious groups whose members rejected commonplace American ideas about race and religion, and highlight issues from our present moment.

2019 URI Honors Colloquium - KECIA ALI- OCT 22
Debates about the roles and status of women connect and divide Muslims worldwide. Among American Muslims—the most racially and ethnically diverse religious group in the United States—questions of gender and authority are also questions about Americanness and identity. Widespread anti-Muslim bias, rhetoric, and violence, in which stereotypes about Muslim women often figure heavily, makes intra-Muslim debates about how to live religiously correct and ethically meaningful lives especially fraught. Gender takes center stage in contentious conversations including over who is qualified to interpret scripture, lead prayer, and speak publicly about Islam. Exploring these debates illustrates diversity within Muslim communities and broader patterns in American religious and social life.

She focuses on "identity work" and "identities in practice" (i.e., what youth do, say, or perform) to understand how youth engage with STEM in ways that empower them as valuable contributors to STEM. Dr. Tan's emphasis on collaborations between researchers and practitioners will inspire symposium attendees to pursue similar partnerships.
