Public Lecture within the framework of the Public Lecture Series "Mobility, Activism and Politics" by Einstein Fellows Research Group at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

On Wednesday, February 12, we will host the final lecture of our public lecture series "Mobility, Activism and Politics".

Our guest speaker will be Philip Gorski, Professor of Sociology at Yale University, with his lecture on "Goodbye Tocqueville? Christianity and Democracy in Trump's America".
Alexis de Tocqueville famously argued that the relationship of Christianity and democracy was complementary in the United States, in contrast to the situation in his native country France. In his lecture, Gorski looks at how American Christianity has changed in the intervening centuries, asks whether these changes may be endangering American democracy, and reflects on the relationship between religious conservatism and right-wing populism in a global context.

The event will be conducted in English.
