Patrice Brodeur

Dr. Patrice C. Brodeur holds the Canada Research Chair on Islam, Pluralism, and Globalization at the University of Montreal. His graduate degrees at Harvard were supplemented with three years studying in Hebrew and Arabic-speaking institutions. Patrice has been involved with the Pluralism Project since the early nineties, an affiliate since 1999. He taught for six years at Connecticut College and was a visiting fellow on interreligious dialogue and conflict resolution at the University of Notre Dame. His research includes using the video conferencing to network interdisciplinary research teams in 13 predominantly Muslim countries studying the intersection of Islam, pluralism, and globalization. An earlier project mapped interfaith dialogue in the Balkans from 1990 to 2006. Professor Brodeur’s books include Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: From Dialogue to Action (2006), co-authored with Eboo Patel, and The Pluralist Paradigm: Democracy and Religion in the 21st Century (2006), co-authored with Sondra Myers.
