360 Degrees: Art Beyond Borders brings together Chicago's leading cultural institutions-the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Poetry Foundation, and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs-for a yearlong celebration of cultural, social, and political life around the world. In tandem with exhibitions pulled from the Art Institute's encyclopedic collection, leading museum directors, renowned musicians, international poets, and cultural leaders explore the role of art and culture around our ever-shrinking globe. This season will offer visitors the singular opportunity to see, hear, and consider the riches the world has to offer, all under one roof.

At this lecture Diana Eck, Harvard University professor of comparative religions and Indian studies and director of the Pluralism Project, explores new questions of faith, ethical quandaries, and civic dilemmas that arise in an increasingly pluralistic world.

Presented with The Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

 

Recorded Thursday, October 16, 2008 at The Art Institute of Chicago-Fullerton Hall.
