Religion, Culture, and Politics Workshop
Leader: Terrence L. Johnson
Held during the 2018-2019 academic year, the Religion, Culture, and Politics Workshop was a bimonthly interdisciplinary workshop sponsored by Georgetown University’s Graduate Program in Theology and Religious Studies and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs. It brought together faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral and affiliate fellows to present and discuss in-progress research grappling with religion, politics, and culture, or research topics exploring the link between religion and contemporary social issues more generally. Papers were distributed in advance of each meeting. In rare instances, the workshop featured and discussed recently published book chapters or essays that are tied to a developing research project.
The workshop met on Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Theology Conference Room (New North 107) on campus. Additional information about the workshop can be found on the Theology Department website.
