1. Konigsburg, Joyce Ann. Relational Interreligious Dialogue: Interdisciplinary Arguments from Creator/Creature Theology and Quantum Entanglement.

Degree: PhD, Theology, 2017, Duquesne University

Globalization, technological advances, and worldviews that perceive religious others with suspicion, all intensify society’s awareness of religious plurality and the subsequent necessity for effective interreligious dialogue. Engaging in interreligious dialogue through daily encounters, conversations, common concerns, and shared religious experiences advances religious pluralism. Nevertheless, the current state of interreligious dialogue is at an impasse; its existing substantive ontological approaches introduce, perpetuate, or worsen challenges of hegemony, elitism, and marginalization, as well as tensions between the diametric goals of religious unity versus unique religious identity. Substantive ontological models emphasize religious autonomy instead of any relational connections between religious traditions. These prevalent methods hinder effective interreligious dialogue. In response, this project proposes relational ontology as a constructive method to address existing issues within interreligious dialogue. Relational ontology asserts that reality is being as being–in–relation. By employing relational ontology, interreligious dialogue participants recognize their fundamental interconnected unity while respecting each religious tradition’s particularity. Moreover, relationality assists in neutralizing power inequalities and marginalization. To illustrate relational ontology and explain its advantages for interreligious dialogue, this project evaluates the models of quantum entanglement and Christianity’s Creator/creation relationship. Placing interdisciplinary perspectives from science and religion in dialogue essentially instantiates the project’s methodology, it validates relational ontology as an effective method for improving the effectiveness of interreligious dialogue. Advisors/Committee Members: Marinus Iwuchukwu, Elizabeth Cochran, Sebastian Madathummuriyil, Theodore Corcovilos.

2. Parangi, Aria. Utilization of Fluorescent Chemosensors to Quantify Pb2+ in Aqueous Media.

Degree: MS, Environmental Science and Management (ESM), 2016, Duquesne University

Currently the detection of environmental lead samples requires time and material intensive methods. Recently, through the development of small fluorescent lead sensors, it may be possible to detect lead in the environment quickly and efficiently. A specific fluorescent chemosensor, Leadglow (LG), has shown promise in detecting low levels of lead in a rapid manner with little sample preparation or training. Leadglow and a naphthalene derivative were successfully synthesized and purified. The lead binding properties of Leadglow and the naphthalene derivative were studied and optimized. The use of Leadglow on several portable devices was also studied. Advisors/Committee Members: Partha Basu, Theodore Corcovilos, John Stolz.
