In September 2016, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education (BMB) established a Special Research Area ‚Interreligiosity’ at the Private University College for Teacher Education Vienna/Krems (KPH). The Research Area is supposed to provide an empirical context-sensitive basis for enhancing interreligious competence in teacher education. It is intensely cooperating with Prof. Dr. Anne Koch at the Zentrum Interreligiöses Lernen | Migrationspädagogik | Mehrsprachigkeit (Opens external link in new windowZIMT) of the Private University College of Education, Linz (PH Linz).

04.04.2021: KPH Centre of empirical IRD-research

Throughout the last few years, the Research Focus 'Interreligiosity' has been established as an international centre of empirical research on Interreligious Dialogue (IRD)-activities. This commitment is now - finally - documented by the publication of a most recent edited volume - entitled ‚Talking Dialogue – Eleven Episodes in the History of the Modern Interreligious Dialogue Movement‘.

The edited volume 'Talking Dialogue' emerged out of the commitment of Prof. Dr. Karsten Lehmann, prior to his work at the KPH. It is based upon case analyses undertaken by an international group of researchers from Argentinia, Austria, France, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, South-Corea, the USA and Venezuela. On the basis of qualitative research on the emerging phases of international organizations that are active in IRD, it makes the point that these organizations have been developing from the margins of the religious field to central actors of international civil society - inter alia in the field of human rights and education.

The Talking Dialogue volume can be accessed via the DeGruyter website. At this point it might be helpful to once again refer to a special issues of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Religion and Transformation - enititled 'Interreligious Dialogue in Context' - that has also been published by Karsten Lehmann.
