E-learning Course Celebrates its 5th Anniversary
9 September 2015
The Woolf Institute's e-learning course, Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Europe: Modern Challenges, has commenced for the 5th time with participants from Croatia, France, Iran, Italy, Kenya, Kosovo, the Netherlands, Serbia, Turkey and the UK.
This three-part course focuses on the relationships between Jews, Christians and Muslims and their impact in modern Europe, and examines historical trends, religious and cultural interaction, and issues of contemporary citizenship.
The Course Tutor, Dr Gorazd Andrejč, will, once again, marry his research background of philosophy and interreligious relations in Europe with the rich tapestry of current European-related source material. Gorazd commented:
"I'm especially excited to teach JCME this year. First and foremost, this is because we again have a very international cohort of students on the course, which is bound to bring different and fresh perspectives to the forum discussions. But also, I'm excited because this year - on the 5th anniversary of the course - we have introduced a few new topics which are of special relevancy for today's social and political situation in Europe, included new tutors (Dr Esther-Miriam Wagner, Dr Christina Fuhr, and Sughra Ahmed), and also for the first time, we will include online streaming of live lectures."
