Amir Hussain.Amir Hussain (PhD, 2001) discusses his approach to teaching religion studies. “You try to be relevant and understand what they’re into. I ask them what they’re listening to, and they tell me ‘I like old school rock and roll, like Nirvana and Pearl Jam’, and I’m like, ‘that’s old school to you?’”

Shari GolbergShari Golberg (PhD, 2013) talks about the work she does, building bridges. "The idea was to take two communities who were often regarded as being at odds with one another and to provide an opportunity to examine the shared history, shared narrative, shared language, shared practices, shared experience of being marginalized, and of violence at different points of history."
