Religion and Social Cohesion
The fourth Righteous Mind symposium, held on March 5, 2013, centered on the topic of "Religion and Social Coehsion." The panel was moderated by Professor Emeritus of Philosophy Richard Schuldenfrei and included Associate Professor of Religion Tariq al-Jamil, Claude Smith Professor Emeritus of Political Science James Kurth, and Swarthmore College President and Professor of Religion Rebecca Chopp.
The Righteous Mind events have been made possible with funding and administrative support from the Swarthmore College Institute for the Liberal Arts. The Institute aims to foster curricular, pedagogical, and scholarly innovation; to engage in generative thinking about the future of the liberal arts and higher education; and to facilitate conversations between liberal arts institutions and those who live liberal arts lives.
