Washington University, St. Louis, recently established the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics, directed by Marie Griffith (formerly of the Harvard Divinity School), which studies the role of religion and politics in American society and, among other things, “convenes public conferences and lectures to address local, state, and national issues related to religion and politics.”  Take a look, and note a couple of interesting upcoming lectures on the center’s events pages by Kevin Schultz (Illinois), on the friendship of Norman Mailer and William F. Buckley, Jr.,  and William Inboden (UT), on Reinhold Niebuhr, Religious Liberty, and World War II.  — MOD
