Jillian Maxey has co-edited a new volume, Women and Interreligious Dialogue (Cascade 2013), with Catherine Cornille.
The volume includes essays by Rosemary Radford Ruether (Claremont Graduate University), Jeannine Hill Fletcher (Fordham University), Nancy Fuchs Kreimer (Reconstructionist Rabbinical College), Aysha Hidayatullah (Jesuit University of San Francisco), Wai Ching Angela Wong (Chinese University of Hong Kong) and others. Essays from the Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim perspectives reflect on women's experiences in dialogue, paying particular attention to the grassroots and margins of these religious traditions.
"This volume, the fifth in the Interreligious Dialogue series, brings together historical, critical, and constructive approaches to the role of women in the dialogue between religions. These approaches deal with concrete examples of women's involvement in dialogue, critical reflections on the representation of women in dialogue, and the important question of what women might bring to the dialogue. Together, they open up new avenues for reflection on the nature and purpose of interreligious dialogue."
