How have diasporas and settler colonialism impacted various religions in the U.S.? How has the history of migration and oppression led to a strengthening of faith for some people while causing a rejection of faith by others? This panel will investigate the ways in which marginalized peoples have retooled and/or rejected the impact of colonialism and missionary activity in past and current social movements of survival, resistance, and social justice. Please join us for a panel discussion moderated by Religion professor Heather Curtis.
Refreshments will be served.
