Geographers are increasingly exploring a wide range of issues concerning religion’s place in contemporary societies, including questions of citizenship, nationalism and education in diverse social contexts. However, given that such topics can be highly charged, educators may opt to use distinctive pedagogical strategies and techniques that enable students to negotiate conflicting information and ideologies in a safe space. This session therefore aims to share new approaches and ideas concerning the teaching of religious issues in geography.
