Robert Putnam - “American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us”
|Date:||Tuesday, October 2nd|
Unique among nations, America is deeply religious, religiously diverse and remarkably tolerant. But in recent decades, the nation’s religious landscape has been reshaped. In his lecture, Putnam will explore his recent book, “American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us.” Co-authored with David Campbell of the University of Notre Dame, the book focuses on the role of religion in American public life. Based on data from two of the most comprehensive national surveys on religion and civic engagement ever conducted, the book won the American Political Science Association’s 2011 Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award for the best book on government, politics, or international affairs.
