Engaging the “New Critics” of Religious Freedom with Timothy Shah

November 2, 2016

In the recent past in the United States, the idea of religious freedom was generally taken as a self-evident truth. Yet, in just a few short years, placid consensus has given way to roiling controversy about the wisdom, virtue, and even the coherence of religious freedom in principle. Religious freedom is now subject to growing dissensus and profound deconstructionist suspicion. At this lunchtime session, Timothy Shah will discuss his recent essay, which discusses this timely issue and which will appear in the Journal of Law and Religion. Participants will receive the essay to read in advance of the session for discussion.
