Santa Barbara, CA

In the wake of the terrorist attacks on the United States, Wade Clark Roof, the J.F. Rowny Professor of Religion and Society at UC Santa Barbara and chair of the Department of Religious Studies, will discuss the challenges of religious pluralism at a UCSB Town Forum lecture to be given at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara St., Santa Barbara.

A brief social precedes the lecture and begins at 5:15 p.m.

Cost of admission is $5 for members of either the UCSB Affiliates or the Chancellor's Council.

For all others, admission is $8.

Roof, a member of the UCSB faculty since 1990, is a frequent commentator on religious trends in the United States and, with UCSB colleague Richard Hecht, is conducting a study of religious pluralism in Southern California under a grant from the Ford Foundation.

In his talk, Roof will share his views on how Americans think about religious pluralism and how religious people might learn more about themselves and their own faiths as they encounter others.
