How did Americans become divided along the political lines we see today? This talk examines how political identities became more and more salient for religious Americans in the mid-twentieth century and explores how this development polarized religious communities and American politics. Whereas most accounts privilege the role of evangelicals and focus on conservative responses to the cultural revolution of the “Sixties,” this talk will narrate the history of today’s culture wars from the perspective of the left-liberal tradition, treating liberals as active agents of America’s polarized political landscape.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, contact the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at 416 946 8464.
