Literature, Culture & Arts

The aim of Abrahamic Programs is to become an innovative umbrella under which academic collaborations, cross-border research, and intercultural communications are fostered. We acknowledge that religion can significantly shape cultural traditions, academic inquiry, beliefs, and inclinations. We also know that Christianity, Islam, and Judaism all call on their adherents to use reason for constructive purposes. By recalling the commonalities among these major cultural traditions, this initiative builds scholarly relationships with the hope of contributing also to regional economic and social development. Literature, Culture & Arts programming emphasizes substantive, in-depth interactions that nurture meaningful, lasting relationships and new research collaborations. Participants coming from diverse professional, cultural, and social backgrounds will be able to explore emerging trends and issues of critical importance while advancing scholarship and deepening individual knowledge.
