Join us on Wednesday, February 15, at 4:00 p.m. in the Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room as we welcome Khyati Y. Joshi, for a conversation about Christianity and whiteness.
Dr. Joshi is a public intellectual whose social science research and community connections inform policy-makers, educators, and everyday people about race, religion, and immigration in 21st century America. Her most recent book is White Christian Privilege: The Illusion of Religious Equality in America (NYU Press, 2020).
Dr. Joshi will be in conversation with Elizabeth Schrader Polczer, doctoral candidate in Religious Studies at Duke and the 2022-23 Anne Firor Scott Public Scholarship Fellow. This is the third in Polczer's four-part series, "Contemporary Conversations in Christianity."
A light reception will follow this conversation, and copies of Dr. Joshi's most recent book will be available for purchase.
