Roots and Resistance: Uneasy Relations between White Nationalism and Christianity

Uneasy Relationships between White Nationalism and Christianity

Monday, February 17, 7:00-8:30 pm

Indiana Interchurch Center, Krannert Hall
1100 W. 42nd St.

Our nation finds itself in an ethically troublesome situation as white nationalist and far-right extremist groups have become more brazen and violent in the past several years. This seminar will provide a frame and grounding for emerging research into and a platform for community education around the resurgence of activities by hate groups with a special focus on the impacts on minoritized religious communities.

This discussion will surface the uncomfortable relationships between Christianity, white nationalism, and far-right ideologies, as well as identify the ways in which Christian individuals and movements are disrupting these relationships.
