William Cullinan, who studied religion at the University of Hawaii and Temple University, where he also taught Asian Religions, will give a seminar at Drapers Hall, IAS, on the 30th of November, 10 a.m. prompt.

Cullinan’s earliest academic interests were in management (BBA) and economics (MS), which he studied at Texas A&M University, and taught for 10 years at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas. He has developed an abiding concern in religious thought as a result of his travels in different parts of the world, especially in Asia. He studied Chinese and taught English for four years at Fu Jen University in Taiwan.

His lecture will focus on the value of critical thinking and ‘deep dialogue’ as a synthesis developed from encountering the diversity of religious thought available in different human societies. He intends to demonstrate the transformative capacity of such dialogic encounters, especially in relation to how people encounter their surroundings on a daily basis. He believes that deep dialogue with new ideas and values transforms the individual.

Cullinan’s lecture promises to be both interesting and thought-provoking. Members of the University and indeed the general are invited to attend this lecture.
