Does Religion Do More to Divide or Unite Americans?

by The Holleran Center for Community Engagement at Alvernia University

Mar 13, 2019
David Campbell, Ph.D

Annual Hesburgh Lecture

Co-Sponsored by the Notre Dame Club of Reading

Monday, March 25th at 7:00pm
McGlinn Conference Center

David Campbell, Ph.D. is the Packey J. Dee Professor of American Democracy and the Chair of the Political Science Department at Notre Dame University. Dr. Campbell has written extensively on religion and civic engagement in America, including the award-winning book American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us. As an expert on religion, politics and civic engagement, Dr. Campbell has often been featured in the national media.

On Monday, March 25th, Dr. Campbell will speak on the topic Does Religion Do More to Divide or Unite Americans? The United States is unusual in combining a high level of religious devotion, religious diversity and religious tolerance – a combination that you might think would lead to conflict. While religion is a fault line in our own national politics, at a personal level most Americans have built bridges across religious lines.

We hope you’ll join us for this lecture, co-sponsored by the Notre Dame Club of Reading. The lecture is free and open to the public.
