President Donald Trump’s close alliance with conservative evangelicals has brought new attention to the relationship between religion and American politics, but this is actually not a new phenomenon in American history. Join us for a historical tour of the controversial relationship between religion and American politics on both the left and the right as we try to answer the question: Why is American politics so religious?
The Other Night School is a lecture series in partnership with Hills & Hamlets Bookshop, the University of West Georgia College of the Arts and Humanities, UWG School of the Arts, and AIR Serenbe. University professors give talks on topics of interest—historical, intriguing, and curious—in a setting relaxed and dynamic. Following the lecture is a conversation with the speaker, a question-and-answer discussion paired with wine and cheese.
