Educating for Peaceful Pro-Existence through a Model of “Live-in” Education in Indonesia
Alexander Asmara (Fordham Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] The growth of religious conflict in the present time, particularly between Muslims and Christians, indicates that within Indonesia there is a deepening gap among religious believers. Responding to this crisis, this article argues that live-in as a model of religious education can be an alternative way to nurture peaceful pro-existence. First, live-in is an exposure to others through living and learning together. Second, live-in rooted rooted in “reflective pedagogy paradigm” is not only a method of learning but a spiritual journey to deepen relationships with God.

A Dialogical Cultural Approach to the Controversy between Israeli Traditionalists and Liberals
Marc Silverman (Hebrew University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Israel’s traditionalists’ claim: Israeli Jews are not ‘Jewish enough’, and Israel’s liberals’ claim: The former are ‘too Jewish’ comprise one of Israel's most divisive issues. A constructivist analysis of their cultural assumptions discloses they hold inflated cultural self-images and devalue each other’s culture. Using a dialogical-cultural paradigm, the paper proposes that traditionalists respect the liberals’ search for human fullness in Jewish political nationalism, and that liberals respect the traditionalists' sense of the decisive importance of historical memory in human culture.
