Dialog, Understanding, & Tolerance: Lessons from Asia, Past & Present

In the venerable Jesuit tradition of facilitating dialog among different faiths and peoples, this symposium brings together speakers from various disciplines and regional specializations to discuss how cultures from Beijing to Samarkand and from Lahore to Hyderabad have found ways of fostering vibrantly multicultural, pluralistic, tolerant, and resilient societies. In that vast region where nearly half of all humanity resides, the universal human desire for mutual understanding has produced wisdom, harmony, and—last but definitely not least— mesmerizingly beautiful music. In this era when multiculturalism is under assault, including by the ultranationalists now ensconced in the White House, we hope this symposium will contribute to the ongoing dialog over how to make our world more equitable and harmonious for everyone.
