Identity X Series: Religion Abroad
May 18th, 2018; noon-1pm; E40-496
Join MISTI staff and students sharing their experiences on religion and spirituality while interning, researching, or studying abroad. Whether you practice a religion or not, you may be in a new country where there are very different belief systems. If you are religious or if your identity is connected to a religious culture, how do you navigate that aspect of your experience in a new country? How do you answer questions about your religious beliefs or family background? Are there any laws or customs that might impact your practice, customs, dress, or place of worship? How do you be respectful of the local religion(s)?
