Even though everyone has opinions about Religion and Politics, they’re topics usually avoided. Harvard political scientist and author Robert Putnam thinks we should talk religion and politics. Putnam is best known as the author of Bowling Alone, a pivotal study on American civil engagement. He will be in Nebraska to deliver the Governor’s Lecture in the Humanities on October 2nd. His new book is American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us. In this interview with NET Radio’s Jerry Johnston, he talks about what has changed over the past 60 years, beginning with the 1950’s.
Robert Putnam will deliver this year's Governor's Lecture in the Humanities on October 2 at the Lied Center in Lincoln.
NET Radio and The Nebraska Humanities Council are partnering to present two panel discussions in advance of Putnam's lecture.
