CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Interreligious and Interfaith Studies Unit and Religion and Politics Unit

Call for Proposals

Law and Politics through an Interfaith Lens

Recent rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court again demonstrate the extent to which Christianity is woven into American law and politics. For example, debates rooted in Christian intellectual history dominate public discourse and manifest in attempts to regulate women’s bodies through limiting access to reproductive health care such as abortion and contraceptives. Such debates also spur the weaponization of religious freedom claims to justify discrimination based on religion, gender, and sexuality.
