When: Tue., Sept. 21, 7-9 p.m. 2021
The Martha Jean Lemon Distinguished Speaker Series presents Reza Aslan, a scholar known for his work to counteract white nationalist movements and Islamophobia. Aslan, an internationally renowned writer, commentator, professor, producer and religion scholar, will give a free public presentation in Kirkpatrick Fine Arts Center. Aslan’s multi-media presentation will explore how religious identity has seemed to fade in western cultures, yet continues to fortify its political power elsewhere. He will give his interpretation of what may come next: will science and secularism prevail, or will religion remain a vital part of human identity?
