The Henry Institute's tenth biennial Symposium on Religion and Public Life will provide opportunities to present current research, to foster personal and professional networks and collaboration, and to learn about opportunities for scholarship and professional development across the disciplines.
The Symposium will feature more than 30 panels on religion and public life covering a wide range of topics and approaches, including sessions on religion and foreign policy, evangelicals and the 2016 presidential election, the Trump presidency, religious freedom and LGBT rights, the future of charitable choice, democratic and anti-democratic movements abroad, Christians as public intellectuals, and a faith-based perspective on criminal justice reform, among many others.
In addition, several special events during the three-day Symposium will feature the annual Paul B. Henry Lecture on Friday evening; Michelle Margolis discussing her pathbreaking book, From Politics to the Pews, and a track of sessions focusing on Populism or Internationalism? Religious Responses to Globalization. Additional panels on will consider criminal justice reform, rights-based religious movements, faith and the Democratic party, the future of religion and conservatism, and more.
Symposium attendance is open to anyone interested in the intersection of religion and public life.
Registration information will be available in early March, 2019.
