"Inter-religious Understanding" subject of BYU lecture March 12

"Inter-religious Understanding" will be the topic of a Global Awareness Lecture presented by Gary D. Bouma on Wednesday, March 12 at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Bouma, a professor of sociology at Monash University in Australia, is an Anglican priest who has been a religious professional in more than eight denominations. He joined Monash University in 1979 and has held various academic and administrative positions there.

His research has primarily focused on the interaction between religion and society in Western countries including Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, with current work that includes a major study of religious plurality in multicultural Australia, research into gender and the management of religious diversity focusing on women and Islam in China, Malaysia and Japan.

A native of Grand Rapids, Mich., Bouma received a B.A. in Greek and philosophy from Calvin College (1963), a B.D. in the history of dogma and church and society from Princeton Theological Seminary (1966), an M.A. in social psychology and a Ph.D. in sociology from Cornell University (1968, 1970).
