On April 8, 2010, Pluralism Project Research Coordinator Erin Loeb and Senior Research Associate Kimberly Richards presented the 5th edition of World Religions in Greater Boston to Dr. Dana Janbek’s “Intercultural Communication” course at Lasell College in Newton, MA for an audience of nearly 50 undergraduate students. Their presentation included an overview and history of the Pluralism Project, a discussion of the Case Study Initiative, a selected tour of World Religions in Greater Boston, and concluded with a clip from the documentary film Fremont U.S.A. to highlight a community’s response to a hate crime. Following the discussion, students were asked to reflect on the work Pluralism Project, the relationship between religion and communication, and to offer their own experiences with pluralism in Greater Boston.
