Deep Equality in an Era of Religious Diversity

Lori G. Beaman

  • Traces deep equality by focusing on positive narratives of people working out and accepting religious differences in everyday life
  • Rather than developing a normative rulebook with prescriptions for living with religious diversity, this study maps the micro-processes that make up the everyday negotiation of difference
  • Focuses on the fragments of stories that model resolution and a desire to find common ground using interviews, public submissions, statements, and fiction
  • Introduces key concepts, such as deep equality, the 'non-event', contaminated diversity, and agonistic respect
