Omtale: Intersections of Religious Privilege March 2009
The goal of this volume is to further the profession's understanding of spirituality and student affairs practice by focusing on intersections of religious privilege that lead to difficult dialogues. It responds to three questions: OL {list-style:disc}P:{margin-center 60px} What inequities exist between the religious and nonreligious as well as the privileged and marginalized religions? What are the historical and potential conflicts caused by these inequities? What can student affairs professionals do to cultivate an environment that supports productive dialogue on issues surrounding religious privilege? Chapter authors discuss issues related to religious privilege that highlight the historical and potential conflicts between those who practice a religion and those who do not and capture the differences between those who are part of a privileged religion versus those who practice a marginalized religion. They also address the subtle nuances of religious privilege in relation to classic tensions that surround race, culture, and sexual orientation.
In addition to describing the conflicts, the authors share practical suggestions on how to manage difficult dialogues surrounding these topics. This is the 125th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Services , an indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals. Each issue of New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
