Same Song, Different Verses: the Anti-Catholic and Anti-Islamic Movements in America
February 26, 2018
Rochester College Auditorium
Presenter: Dr. Keith Huey
Foreign conspiracy theories have been a standard part of American life, and each generation has defined itself against the foil of a different mortal enemy. We will consider this American tradition, with special attention to the anti-Catholic conspiracy theories of the 19th century and the anti-Islamic conspiracy theories of the 21st century. We will discuss the recurring themes and hopefully get a better perspective on our present-day situation.
About the Speaker: Dr. Keith Huey is Professor of Religion and Chair of the Department of Religion and Bible at Rochester College. Keith is interested in missions, international studies, world religions, and interfaith dialogue. Keith also serves as an elder at Rochester Church of Christ.
