2009 Summer WRGB Launch and Research Symposium


Friday, July 31, 2009 (All day)


12 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
On Friday, July 31, the Pluralism Project hosted a preview launch of World Religions in Greater Boston, fifth edition. The symposium featured the work of our webmaster, Ryan Overbey, who built the new user interface, and our summer interns who provided updates for the new directory and multi-media content. The symposium was held at Harvard’s Barker Center for the Humanities, and guests included religious and lay leaders from a diverse range of communities and centers, as well as Harvard faculty, friends of the Project, and funders from The Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. World Religions in Greater Boston features a new online user interface with updated audio-visual content, interactive maps, a near-comprehensive directory of religious centers and organizations, a searchable news database, links to introductory materials, and resources by tradition. 2009 Summer Research Symposium
