Charles Cohen gives talk in Milwaukee

Badger Café: “Jews and Muslims in Christian America”

Charles Cohen, an award-winning professor emeritus in the UW–Madison Department of History and the founding director of the Lubar Institute for the Study of Abrahamic Religions, teaches and writes about American religious history and the braided histories of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In his talk, he will examine religious life in the United States. Are there circumstances in which religious beliefs make a group seem incapable of being good citizens — even though the nation’s basic values would seem to preclude religious identity as a condition of citizenship?

Light refreshments will be served.

This free event is open to all, but registration by April 23 is strongly recommended!
