Join the Interdisciplinary Religion Group as we learn from Dr. Ben Shannon, a lecturer in the History Department at the University of Wisconsin. His presentation will reflect arguments put forward in his recently completed dissertation on the politicization of religion. In particular, he will discuss how a West German protest group, known as the Political Night Prayer, helps us to understand the Christian-Marxist encounter of the 1960s and 1970s and its lasting impact on Christian political engagement.
