Round Table Discussion on the Study of Religion / Race / Politics


Location: McKenna Hall, Rooms 100 and 104

What are the pressing issues for the study of race, religion, and politics? What resources ought to be tapped? To what extent can, or can’t, these issues be addressed as part of the study of culture more broadly?

These questions will be addressed by several invited scholars, including J. Kameron Carter, associate professor of Theology, Duke Divinity School; Angela Dillard, professor of Afroamerican and African Studies, University of Michigan; Eddie Glaude, professor and chair of the Center for African American Studies, Princeton University; and Vincent Lloyd, professor of religion at Syracuse University and a 2012-2103 Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study distinguished guest fellow. Additional University of Notre Dame and regional scholars will join the discussion as well.

The event is part of a special symposium, “Theology and Black Politics,” sponsored by the Department of Africana Studies and the NDIAS, which will include meetings with scholars and African-American church leaders and a number of open sessions available to University of Notre Dame faculty and students, as well as to the general public.

A reception will follow for symposium participants and guests in the McKenna Hall atrium.
