Faculty of Arts Dean's Lecture Series — McMartin Memorial Lecture: “Negotiating Religious Diversity: Tolerance, Accommodation and Deep Equality”


While religious conflict receives plenty of attention, the everyday negotiation of religious diversity, through humour,
friendship and respect among ordinary people, does not. Lori G. Beaman, one of Canada’s leading specialists on
this topic, invites you to discover these success stories, which will make you see religious diversity in a different light.

The Faculty of Arts Dean's Lecture Series features the Faculty’s best professors and researchers engaging alumni 
on key academic themes affecting the world we live in.



Lori G. Beaman, PhD, is Canada Research Chair in the Contextualization of Religion in a Diverse Canada
and a professor in the Department of Classics and Religious Studies of the University of Ottawa. She has
authored numerous publications, including
Defining Harm: Religious Freedom and the Limits of the Law
(UBC Press, 2008). She is currently director of the
Religion and Diversity Project, which brings together
an international team of 37 researchers.
