Wendy Cadge, Ph.D., a sociologist at Brandeis University and expert in contemporary American religious demographics, will headline the third annual James Sawers Jr. Speaker Series presented by the Charleston Interreligious Council. In her latest book with the same title, Cadge examines who chaplains are and what scholars can learn about how people make sense of suffering by analyzing their daily work. In this presentation, attendees will hear the analysis, explanations, and practices that chaplains have developed around suffering, resilience, hope, and other aspects of personal experiences.
This research is based on several years of ethnographic and historical research in Boston. This lecture is a series of four free lectures and workshops that are open to the public and will be held Nov. 7-9, 2019 at various locations around Charleston.
Those of all faiths and religious backgrounds are welcome to attend to be part of the conversation. For questions about the speaker series, contact Ken Fox at 843-763-3150 or SCKenFox@comcast.net. Please visit https://www.cicouncil.org/events for event locations.
