Global Religion and American World-Making Conference

Global Religion and American World-Making,” an April 8-9, 2022 conference at the University of Notre Dame

“Global Religion and American World-Making” aims to generate cross-disciplinary discussions on the role of religion in the projection of U.S. power in the world and in responses to it. A series of roundtables will bring historians, political scientists, and scholars from Religious Studies, American Indian Studies, American Studies, and Peace Studies into conversation over religion’s role in the exercise and legitimation of U.S. power abroad as well as resistance to it; sources, archives, and methods for writing religion into studies of American global power; and the implications of understandings of religion and U.S. power for secularization narratives.

Sophie Richardson, China Director at Human Rights Watch, will deliver the keynote address on Friday, April 8. Participants include Melissa Borja (University of Michigan), Emily Conroy-Krutz (Michigan State University), and Lauren Turek (Trinity University), and from Notre Dame: David Campbell, Darren Dochuk, Timothy Matovina, and Atalia Omer.
