A conversation about religion, identity, and exclusion in a new political era

The Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy will present a symposium organized around Libby Professor of Law and Theology Cathleen Kaveny’s book, Prophecy without Contempt: Religious Discourse in the Public Square. The conversation will take April 7 from  1:30–5:00 p.m. at 2101 commonwealth avenue on Brighton Campus and will feature Rowan Williams, the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury and master at Magdelene College, University of Cambridge; McGill University Professor of Philosophy Emeritus Charles Taylor, and University of Chicago John U. Nef Distinguished Service Professor Jonathan Lear. Using Kaveny’s book as a starting point, the scholars will offer their insights on the challenges of facilitating fruitful dialogue across religious and political divides of contemporary society. Kaveny will then offer a response, followed by discussion.
