An Evening Conversation
with John Inazu

Confident Pluralism in a Turbulent Age


The Trinity Forum, Montgomery Bell Academy, and St. Paul Christian Academy are delighted to invite you to an Evening Conversation with law professor and legal policy expert John Inazu on "Confident Pluralism in a Turbulent Age."

During this Evening Conversation, Dr. Inazu will examine the state of religious freedom and challenges to pluralism in our polarized age. He will offer ways of learning to live with our deep differences over politics, race, religion, sexuality, and other important matters, by strengthening constitutional commitments that protect difference and dissent, and by embodying civic practices in our speech, action, and relationships.

John Inazu is the Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law and Religion and Professor of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. He teaches criminal law, law and religion, and various First Amendment seminars. His scholarship focuses on the First Amendment freedoms of speech, assembly, and religion, and related questions of legal and political theory. John is also a Senior Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia. His first book, Liberty’s Refuge: The Forgotten Freedom of Assembly, was published by Yale University Press in 2012. His second book, Confident Pluralism: Surviving and Thriving Through Deep Difference, was published by the University of Chicago Press last year, and has drawn widespread critical acclaim. He has written broadly for mainstream audiences in publications including USA TodayCNN, the Hedgehog ReviewThe Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post.
