The theme of the 2018-19 working group is “Pain and Joy, Polemics and Praise in Religious Communities.” Graduate and professional students representing six departments and two schools developed projects exploring the ways in which members of religious communities represent, interpret, and act in response to suffering and good fortune, or to clashes between traditions and values.
