Hinduism is an ancient and complex faith. Its roots and customs date
back more than 4,000 years. Today, with about 900 million followers, Hinduism
is the third-largest world religion with the vast majority of its adherents living
in or immigrated from India. Because Hinduism has no specific founder,
it’s difficult to trace its origins and history. It is unique in that it’s a multi-layered
compilation of many representations of God, and diverse rituals, traditions, and philosophies.
Teachers who attend this session and the field trip will receive a
certificate of completion for professional development upon request.

invite you to this national conference call discussion
with author Yael (Yuli) Tamir

Around the world today, nationalism is back—and it’s often deeply troubling. Populist politicians exploit nationalism for authoritarian, chauvinistic,
racist, and xenophobic purposes, reinforcing the
view that it is fundamentally reactionary and antidemocratic.
But Yael (Yuli) Tamir makes a passionate argument for a very
different kind of nationalism—one that revives its
participatory, creative, and egalitarian virtues, answers
many of the problems caused by neoliberalism and
hyperglobalism, and is essential to democracy at its best.
Join WACA for a conversation with Professor Tamir as she explains
why it is more important than ever for the Left to recognize these
qualities of nationalism, to reclaim it from right-wing extremists, and
to redirect its power to progressive ends.
Professor Yael (Yuli) Tamir is President of Shenkar College and an adjunct professor at the Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University.
To educate and promote a deeper understanding of global issues and to engage
conversation on how world affairs impact our local communities now and into the
