Andrew Whitehead is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Director of the Association of Religion Data Archives at the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture at IUPUI (Indiana University and Purdue University). He will lead off our discussion by summarizing his sociological research about the rise of Christian Nationalism in the United States. His work was recently published under the title, Taking America Back for God.

David Goldenberg is the Midwest Regional Director of the Anti-Defamation League. He will follow Andrew Whitehead’s presentation by providing an overview of the rise of hate crimes in the United States and in the Midwest, in particular.

William Cavanaugh is Professor and Director of the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology at DePaul University. He will follow David Goldenberg’s presentation by providing a theological interpretation about Christian Nationalism as idolatry.

Michael Hollerich is Professor Emeritus at the University of St. Thomas. For years, he has taught a course on Christianity and Nazism, and another on Theology and Politics at the University of St. Thomas. He will follow Dr. Cavanaugh’s presentation with another theological interpretation informed by his understanding of Nazism, outlining some of the key similarities but also key differences of the current situation in the United States and the rise of Nazism during the Weimar Republic.

Registration coming soon.
