Event Details:

A Panel Discussion with Mohammad Fadel (University of Toronto)
Robert Gregg (Stanford University), Rebecca Lyman (University of California, Berkeley), Richard Madsen (University of California, San Diego), and Steve Weitzman (Stanford University)

The panel will focus on the historical, philosophical, theological, jurisprudential links between democracy and Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism. The event is part of the Abbasi Program's 2011-12 “We the People: Islam and U.S. Politics” Event Series, which focuses on the ever-changing place of Islam and Muslims in contemporary American political discourse and its potential role for the future of American democracy, society and culture. Bringing together academics, artists and public intellectuals, the series provides a forum for deep, critical conversations about America as much as about Muslims and Islam in America.
