Session 2, "The Changing Religious Landscape in the U.S.", Exploring Religious Questions Series
February 11, 2013 at 7–9 pm[2h]
The Exploring Religious Questions mini-course continues with a presentation by Dr. Sarah Johnson Ruble (religion) on "The Nature, Rise, and Contemporary Influence of American Fundamentalism." In the early part of the 20th century, "fundamentalist" appeared as a new term on the American religious scene. In the 1970s, the term became important in political conversations as fundamentalists appeared as major players in American politics. We will look at the origins of American fundamentalism, its theological perspective, and what drove some fundamentalists to become active in politics. We will also consider the influence of fundamentalism on American religion and society.
This is the second session of this 5-weeks course. The course has been designed by Dr. Darrell Jodock. Advance pre-registration is necessary (limited space is available), and there is a fee for the course. All sessions begin promptly.
In case of cancellation due to winter storms, we will attempt to contact registrants during the day by phone and e-mail, if our records include the information. (Snow date rescheduling: March 11.)
