Luther Lecture 2020 featuring Dr. Azza Karam

The 2020 Luther Lecturer will be Dr. Azza Karam, a senior advisor at the United Nations on Culture and Social Development, and a lead facilitator for the UN Strategic Learning Exchanges on Religion, Development, and Humanitarian Issues. Dr. Karam’s work focuses around gender and interfaith issues.

Dr. Karam's presentation is entitled "Working with Religious Communities: Lessons Learned from Across the United Nations."

The Luther Lecture was established by Luther College at the University of Regina in 1977 with the purpose of making a distinctive and stimulating contribution to the life of the University and the general community. Annually, a distinguished scholar or leader of note is invited to give a public talk on matters of spiritual and social importance.

The 2020 Luther Lecture is provided in part through a generous grant from the members of Faith Life Financial, Canadian Lutheran World Relief, and the James Kurtz Memorial Trust Fund.
