After September 11, 2021: The Next 20 Years

20 Sep 2021


The twentieth anniversary of the September 11 attacks prompted sustained reflection on the relationship between religion and violence, the place of religion and society, and the connections between memory, reconciliation, and peace. The Berkley Center has been grappling with these questions since its founding in 2006.
In this online event, four of the center’s scholars–José Casanova, Jocelyne Cesari, Rev. Drew Christiansen, S.J., and Katherine Marshall–will look ahead to the next 20 years, exploring the post-9/11 challenges for religion and public life, global Islam, diplomacy and peacemaking, and education and development. Berkley Center Director Thomas Banchoff will introduce the event; Senior Fellow Paul Elie will moderate. This conversation will build on a series of Berkley Center faculty reflections that use the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 to explore the past, present, and future of religion, peace, and world affairs.
