Marburg Lecture: American Grace
Presented by Robert D. Putnam
Wednesday, November 3

4:00 p.m.
Weasler Auditorium
Marquette University Campus

Distinguished author and Harvard Professor, Robert Putnam, will discuss his newest publication, American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us on Wednesday, November 3, 2010 in the Weasler Auditorium on Marquette’s campus.  The book is based on five years of field work in a dozen congregations around the country, as well as two major national surveys on religion and civic life.  The authors examine the complex interaction of religion and politics over the past half-century and provide a nuanced balance sheet of how religion both contributes to and detracts from the vibrancy and stability of American democracy.

Dr. Putnam is the Malkin Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University and Visiting Professor at the University of Manchester in England. A former dean of the Kennedy School of Government, he is past president of the American Political Science Association.  He has written a dozen books, translated into twenty languages, including the best-selling Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community and Making Democracy Work, which rank among the most cited publications in the social sciences worldwide in the last half century.

The lecture series is named in honor of the late Theodore F. Marburg, a long-time member of the economics department. The goal of the Marburg Memorial Lecture is to provide a forum for the discussion of moral, philosophical and social dimensions of economic issues, as well as continue Professor Marburg’s commitment to the economic aspects of peace and justice.
