IDA NOYES HALL |
Monday, October 18 | 5:30pm-6:45pm
Please join the Martin Marty Center for the Public Understanding of Religion and the Institute of Politicss as we welcome Rachel Mikva, Professor of Jewish Studies at the Chicago Theological Seminary; Russell Moore, IOP Pritzker Fellow and Public Theologian at Christianity Today; Asma Uddin, author of the Politics of Vulnerability and religious freedom expert for a candid discussion on the intersection of faith and politics. Is faith good for democracy? Are those with deeply held religious beliefs less likely to become polarized politically? And what’s the real meaning of “Separation of Church and State?”
Moderating this discussion is Brie Loskota, Executive Director of the Martin Marty Center for the Public Understanding of Religion at the University of Chicago Divinity School.
