The Institute for Religion, Politics and Culture
We throw that old adage—never to talk religion or politics in polite company—out the window. Very gently, of course.
In this world of increasing polarization, it’s important to understand how religion and political culture intersect and inform each other, in terms of American and world history, contemporary American politics, and internationally.
Under the direction of Joseph Prud’homme, The Institute for Religion, Politics and Culture stresses openness to argument, and sensitivity to contending viewpoints.
Funded by private individuals and foundations, the Institute has established a number of initiatives, including
the Oxford Research Seminar
a Distinguished Speakers series
a peer-reviewed book series
a leadership scholars program
a junior associates program
