Presented by the Divinity School's Craft of Teaching in the Academic Study of Religion program. Led by Divinity School alumnus Nelson Tebbe (PhD, Anthropology and Sociology of Religion, 2006), Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School.  Prof. Tebbe's scholarship focuses on the relationship between religious traditions and constitutional law, both in the United States and abroad, and is a regular commentator in the media on religious freedom.  He is also a past recipient of the Dean's Teaching Award at St. John's School of Law.  Prof. Tebbe will introduce and discuss his courses and teaching strategies at Brooklyn Law School.  Divinity School students will be especially interested to learn how Prof. Tebbe's dual specializations and disciplinary trainings are integrated in his teaching, and what teachers of religion practicing their craft in other contexts can learn from the best practices of signature law school pedagogies.
