The series will bring together seven distinguished scholars with Northwestern faculty, graduate and undergraduate students interested in the interaction of law, religion, culture and politics in social, historical, political and legal contexts. Serving as a forum for reflection on theoretical, methodological, and critical issues in law and society, religion and diversity, and culture and politics in the US and globally, the series will traverse disciplinary boundaries to explore these questions drawing on insights from political science, law, religious studies, anthropology, sociology, and history.

The series will complement and contribute to discussions, teaching, and institution building in this field at Northwestern, including the Religion & Global Politics Certificate Program, Elizabeth Shakman Hurd and Robert Orsi’s graduate seminar “Religion and Modernity” (Winter 2015), and the Graduate Student Workshop on Religion & Global Politics led by Mona Oraby and Ariel Schwartz.

Professor Alessandro Ferrari will be visiting Northwestern in fall 2014 as the Roberta Buffett Visiting Professor of International Studies, and Professor Vanja Savic will be in residence in the fall and winter quarters, also affiliated with BCICS.
