27th Annual Spirit & Place Festival Public Conversation: American Identity

November 13, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

How have the ways in which Americans identify been shaped by race, religion, region, and gender? What other forces have shaped our individual and collective sense of identity? Can we even speak of a singular “American identity?”

This year’s Public Conversation invites historian Kathleen Belew (Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America and co-editor and contributor to A Field Guide to White Supremacy), religious studies scholar Stephen Prothero (Religion Matters: An Introduction to the World’s Religions), and former White House staffer (2013-16) and co-founding partner of Culture House Media, Carri Twigg, to engage in a moderated conversation where we will examine how Americans identify and what role the arts, humanities, and religion can play in helping cultivate a shared sense of identity during divisive times. (VIRTUAL EVENT.)

Presented by Spirit & Place and The Center for the Study of Religion & American Culture at IUPUI. This program has been made possible through a grant from Indiana Humanities in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
