Description: The recent proliferation of social, political, and economic protest and populist expression, from Black Lives Matter to Hindu Nationalism, invites renewed exploration of religion's age-old power to fuel and shape cultural change. This conference brings together a diverse group of scholars across national and religious divides to examine the impact of religion on various social and political movements. Organized around six themes  nationalism, immigration, race, gender, ecological concern, and economics  this conference aims to illuminate the complex dynamics of religion in protest and social upheaval.
