Presidential Politics and the Making of American Identity
Thursday, October 20, 2016 - 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Panel on Presidential Politics and the Making of American Identity
What role is religion playing in the 2016 presidential campaign? How is this similar to or different from previous elections? What does the future of religion and politics hold—either in elections or in day-to-day political life?
These are a few of the questions that will be discussed in the Center's next Alternative Visions event, taking place in the Old Main Carson Ballroom on the ASU Tempe campus at 4:30pm on Thursday October 20, 2016. The event will feature a panel discussion on religion and politics in the context of the presidential election. Moderated by Center Director Linell Cady, the panel will include Edward E. Curtis from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Robert P. Jones from the Public Religion Research Institute, and Laura Olson from Clemson University.
The Religion and Conflict: Alternative Visions speaker series brings nationally and internationally recognized experts such as Michael Ignatieff, Karen Armstrong, Andrew Bacevich, David Eagleman, and Reza Aslan to campus to address the sources and dynamics of conflict and strategies for its resolution. The series is supported by a grant from philanthropist John Whiteman.
