To kick off this year’s McKinzie symposium—One Nation Under God: The Politics of America’s Religious Diversity—the University of Wisconsin’s Charles L. Cohen delivers a keynote address on the issues facing minority religions in America.
Cohen is a professor of history and religious studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and director of the Lubar Institute for the Study of the Abrahamic Religions.
The symposium is co-sponsored by the Bernardin Haskell Lecture Fund, UMKC Center for Midwestern Studies, and the UMKC Division of Diversity and Inclusion.
The symposium continues on Friday with workshops from 9 a.m.—2 p.m. that are open to the public but geared to students and educators.
