Kripke Center Symposium

Religion and the New Politics
Thursday, February 13, and Friday, February 14, 2020
8:30am - 5:00pm (each day), Skutt 105

With the coming of the 2020 national election, the American public is addressing many new political configurations, such as Trumpism, the new Evangelicalism, socialism and democratic socialism, populism, and resistance movements, and many new (or newly framed) political issues, such as universal healthcare, the Green New Deal, immigration, nationalism, higher education reform, climate change, tax reform, LGBTQI rights, and many others. This Kripke Symposium seeks to address these issues and the role that religion can and does play in the new politics.

The symposium will take place Thursday–Friday, February 13-14, in Skutt Student Center 105, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Click here for the schedule of speakers and topics.
