Religion, Nationalism & the Future of Democracy: A Conversation with Peter Beinart

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 7:00pm

Religious and ethnic nationalisms are resurgent in democracies around the world. How does the media cover these movements? Does its focus on conflict and violence further fuel and intensify civic strife? Are there other stories about religion and democratic culture that should be told?

Peter Beinart, contributing editor at The Atlantic and associate professor of journalism and political science at the City University of New York, will join moderators John Carlson (Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict) and Kristin Gilger (Cronkite School) for a discussion of these issues, speaking to how he addresses them through a comparative approach.

The lecture is free & open to the public, but RSVPs are kindly requested. RSVP on Eventbrite here: http://bit.ly/PeterBeinartConvo
