Dual Allegiances: Christian, Jewish and Muslim Perspectives

This event seeks to foster dialogue on the relationships between religious traditions and civic identity, citizenship, and the American legal tradition. It will focus on the ways in which religious communities have answered charges of civil disloyalty and how religious believers representing Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions in America have understood and shaped their overlapping, sometimes conflicting, religious and political identities.
