The unintended reformation : how a religious revolution secularized society /

by Gregory, Brad S.

Publisher: Cambridge, MA The Belknap Press of the Harvard University Press 2012Description: 574 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: In a work that is as much about the present as the past, Brad Gregory identifies the unintended consequences of the Protestant Reformation and traces the way it shaped the modern condition over the course of the following five centuries. A hyperpluralism of religious and secular beliefs, an absence of any substantive common good, the triumph of capitalism and its driver, consumerism - all these, Gregory argues, were long-term effects of a movement that marked the end of more than a millennium during which Christianity provided a framework for shared intellectual, social, and moral life in the West. ; Contents: Introduction : the world we have lost? -- Excluding God -- Relativizing doctrines -- Controlling the churches -- Subjectivizing morality -- Manufacturing the goods life -- Secularizing knowledge -- Conclusion : against nostalgiaAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

National Ethnic Disability Alliance 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Drawing on focus group discussions this report document stories and descriptions of what it means to belong, to be accepted and to feel socially included and connected. ; Social policy researchers have taken an increasing interest in moving beyond traditional measurements of poverty and disadvantage (such as income deprivation) to a focus on social capital and cohesion, and wellbeing as measurements of broad participation and community resilience. ; However, culture has an effect on what people understand by ?belonging? and ?participation.? It remains unclear whether current understandings of social cohesion and wellbeing are comparable across all cultural and linguistic communities.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Us and them : interfaith relations and cultural harmony in Australia /

by Ata, Abe W.

Publisher: Bowen Hills, Qld. Australian Academic Press 2009Description: viii, 178 p.: ill. graphs.Other title: Us and them: Muslim-Christian relations and cultural harmony.Summary: Cross-cultural research provides exceptional insights into the hopes and fears of dealing with people different to ourselves. In Australia, such research suggests that Australian Muslims have surpassed Asians as one of the country's most marginalised religious and ethnic groups. Muslims and people from the Middle East are thought to be unable to fit into Australia, with more than 50% of Australians preferring their relatives did not to marry into a Muslim family. Yet this statistic masks diverse interpretations of interfaith relations and cultural harmony present across Australia today. In 12 essays Us and Them offers truths about interfaith relations as they are believed and expressed by Muslim and non-Muslim Australians. The essays are interdisciplinary and varied in topic, and seek to challenge the images of Islam held by both xenophobic Westerners and extremist Muslims. Drawn from a variety of research projects over past years, including results from a national survey on attitudes towards Islam and Muslims among Australian secondary students, they also raise thematic questions, such as: Will any dialogue lead to a rapprochement between the Muslim and mainstream communities? What is Christian-Muslim diversity? Why does it matter? Can we really learn how to manage diversity in the workplace? Can the Shari'a law coexist with the Australian legal system on issues including polygamy, marital status and dress?Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Why are you "active" : voices of young muslim women post-9/11 : a thesis submitted in conformity with the requirements for the degree of Masters of Arts Graduate Department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education /

by Aslam, Jabeen | University of Toronto.

Publisher: Toronto, Canada Thesis 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 108-117Summary: Contributing to the literature on the Muslim experience post-9/11, the purpose of this study was to engage with a group that is often talked about, but not with: Muslim youth. Using an integrative anti-racist and anti-colonial approach with an emphasis on a spiritual way of knowing, this study gives voice to young Muslim activists in Toronto who have made the choice to 'do something'. The study aims to understand what motivates these young activists, particularly in the context of post-9/11 Islamophobia, with the goal being to challenge stereotypical perceptions of Muslims, while contributing to the body of knowledge that aims to disrupt dominant notions of what 'Canadian' identity is. The following analysis helps answer this question, which includes the role of spirituality, the attachment to Canadian identity and the desire to educate. Key challenges and what these youth prescribe for Canada's future are also discussedAvailability: (1)
