The Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute invites you to attend our October webinar, Sharing Scholarship about Religious Persecution: How to Make People Care. We will discuss how scholars of religion can engage different publics, including policymakers, about religious persecution at home and abroad. We are pleased to host co-presenters Rosalind Hackett, professor, University of Tennessee in Knoxville; Daniel Philpott, professor, University of Notre Dame; and Katayoun Kishi, research associate, Pew Research Center. The webinar will include a presentation and extended Q&A.
This webinar is hosted by the Public Scholars Project, a joint initiative of the Public Understanding of Religion Committee of the American Academy of Religion and the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute. The Public Scholars Project created this webinar series to help scholars hone their skills at communicating with a variety of publics. Our webinars feature scholars and practitioners who can provide tools, resources, and recommendations for presenting in a variety of settings (e.g., social media, news, public events, community gatherings) about a range of topics.
