Intersectionalities and Cosmopolitanisms in Interreligious Studies, A Response by Najeeba Syeed to Jeannine Hill Fletcher

Written in response to Jeannine Hill Fletcher’s essay on research and practice challenges in interreligious education, this article uses Hill Fletcher’s focus on the challenges that Christian theologians must address in the field as a springboard to propose an interrogation of the construct of religion itself. The author also calls for examining our understandings and definitions of intersectionality and cosmopolitanism, including their class assumptions, and addresses the ways that scholars and practitioners must interrogate these terms as they build the fields of both study and practice. One of the important impacts of this interrogation is the widening of the scope of voices that can be recognized and heard as part of interreligious conversation.
