Kripke Center to host Symposium on Religion and Politics at Creighton University

The Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society will host its Symposium on Religion and Politics Feb. 19-20 at Creighton University. The symposium will take place from 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. in Room 3029 of the Mike and Josie Harper Center. The schedule of the symposium, including titles of the presentations, can be found here.

The Kripke Symposium will bring together scholars from both Creighton and around the United States to examine how religion and politics intersect.

Speakers will address theoretical and historical issues, as well as a wide range of contemporary issues such as the environment and climate change, the role of religion in political reform, the religious “nones” and secularization, income inequality, poverty, and the “safety-net,” changing religious demographics, political Islamism, religious freedom and persecution, and other issues.
