Religion and development World Bank lecturer, Nov. 13
Posted November 10, 2001; 10:06 a.m.
The Center for Study of Religion presents its fall lecture, "Development and Religion: Harmony or Discordance?" by Katherine Marshall of the World Bank on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 4:30 p.m. in Multipurpose Room A, Frist Campus Center. The lecture is free and open to the public.
As recent director of the World Bank's Faiths and World Faiths Development Dialogue, Marshall helped established this new institution to promote active dialogue on development and poverty issues among faith and development institutions around the world. Currently, she serves as director of the Development Dialogue on Ethics and Values and counselor to the president of the World Bank.
Marshall's lecture will trace some recent debates about whether and how the development field should take more account of both work and ideas of faith organizations. Also, she plans to raise questions of how the events of Sept. 11, juxtaposed with "anti-globalization" debates, may shake paradigms underlying development work.
