Colloquia Series with Dr. David Campbell

David CampbellDr. David Campbell will speak on Thursday, February 17 at 7 p.m. and Friday, February 18 at 10:10 a.m. in Skye Lounge.Dr. Campbell will discuss the book he recently produced with Harvard’s Robert Putnam, American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us.

Based on two of the most comprehensive surveys ever conducted on religion and public life in America, American Grace explores the complex interaction of religion and politics during the past 50 years and identifies how religion simultaneously contributes to and detracts from the stability of American democracy.

A professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Campbell is also a research fellow with the Institute for Educational Initiatives. He has published several books and articles and won awards from the American Political Science Association for the best doctoral dissertation in American politics, the best paper on elections and voting, and twice for the best paper on religion and politics at the association's annual meeting.

Campbell’s appearance is part of Geneva College’s Colloquia Series, where each semester speakers from around the world are invited to come and discuss compelling socio-cultural, scientific, religious, literary, educational, political and economic ideas. This series of lectures is designed to engage students and the community in topics that impact the world in which we live and to foster intellectual, Christian-principled thought and discussion.
