New blog post today by ” by Dr. Tat-siong Benny Liew!

“You are now entering the real world.”

This is undoubtedly one of the most popular remarks that college/university graduates hear around the time of their commencement ceremony. The comment implies, of course, that life on campus is a kind of artificial existence, since, just to give one example, there are generally no children in sight..."

NEW blog post today by Dr. Nancy Lynne Westfield, Associate Professor of Religious Education, at Drew Theological School!

"In an age of uncertainty, professor and student, conveniently wear our certainty as armor protecting ourselves from too much change. Teachers want to teach with the irretractable certainty of disciplinary categories and students want the certainty of a non-critical religion. By the second year of seminary, students develop a “go along to get along” attitude – saying and writing what she thinks the professor wants to hear; the professor is unaware that students are pandering..."
Nancy Lynne Westfield<br> Associate Professor of Religious Education<br> Drew Theological School<br><br> Imagine this scenario: “YOU TOOK MY JESUS!” said the first-semester student who is feeling displaced, disoriented, disappointed and enraged while being overwhelmed, even defeated, by the unexpected convergence of seminary courses’ too dense readings along with the absence of.

"According to a TED Talk by Harvard psychologist Ann Cuddy that has been seen over 33 million times, simply striking a PastedGraphic-4power pose—that is, spreading out your arms and/or legs in an expansive position—in private for two minutes can change your body chemistry (increasing your testosterone and decreasing your cortisol) so you will actually become more assertive and less stress-reactive. Cuddy’s research suggests that these power poses can actually change not only your hormone levels but also your mind; they can improve your self-perception, increase your self-confidence, and enhance your performance in an emotionally challenging or anxiety producing..."

New blog post today about violence in the classroom by Cláudio Carvalhaes, Associate Professor at McCormick Theological Seminary.

"Fears breed fears and fear becomes one of the major organizing emotion of our political life. Since guns are everywhere, anywhere in this country can become a deadly place, including the school. The classroom, the teacher’s study, the cafeteria, or any other place inside of the school can be a deadly place. Prof Klug’s study was just one of these places and he is a victim not only of his killer (who also killed himself) but a victim of a larger political atmosphere of fear..."

New blog post today on our "Teaching Islam" blog by Sophie Gilliat-Ray, Director Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK at Cardiff University.
"There has been a noticeable expansion of the professional field of ‘Islamic Studies’ in the last decade. Academic publishers have developed their lists; new professional associations have been formed (e.g. ‘BRAIS – British Association for Islamic Studies, established in 2014); and, new modules and academic programmes have been validated. Alongside these developments there has been a growth of new empirical social scientific research, with particular focus upon ‘issues’ facing Muslim communities in diasporic settings..."
