Healing a Wounded World: Voices from the Bahá’í Tradition

Tuesday, February 28, 2023 12:00 pm EST

Humankind has long struggled with afflictions such as war, racism, and gender inequality. Today, despite progress, these scourges persist, and they disproportionately harm marginalized communities, preventing our human family from advancing dignity for all.

The Ansari Institute engages normative perspectives from the world’s many religious, spiritual, and secular traditions on these topics. On February 28, we welcome voices from the Baha’i tradition. Founded in the 19th century, this tradition teaches the essential worth of all religions and the unity of all people. The founder of the faith, Bahá’u’lláh, called for harmonious relations between the world’s religions and nations.

What can this tradition teach us today? How might it help us better understand the oneness of humanity? And how might we draw on its perspectives as we work toward a more just and equitable world?

Join us for a panel discussion to hear insights from scholars who will address these questions.

Presented by the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion and co-sponsored by the University of Notre Dame’s Klau Institute for Civil and Human Rights, Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, and Department of American Studies.

Join us on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm ET.
