Event Series Event Series: Lifespan RE Hour

For our December Hot Topics, we are joining University Baptist and Brethren for a presentation on White Christian Nationalism featuring Dr. Esther Prins

Dr. Esther Prins, White Christian Nationalism: What is it and how should Christians respond?  This presentation will explore what White Christian nationalism is—and what it is not. Learn how education is showing up in current events (particularly in education) and reflect on why Christians should care and how we can work to counteract this powerful religio-political movement.

Esther Prins is a professor in the Lifelong Learning and Adult Education Program at Penn State. Her research focuses on adult education (particularly adult and family literacy) and, more broadly, the intersection of (adult) education and social justice. With co-authors Mary Juzwik and Kevin Burke, she recently published an article on White Christian nationalism and educational research (attached). She and Mary are writing a new article on White Christian nationalism and the local SCASD school board election. Esther grew up in the Christian Reformed Church and graduated from Wheaton College (BA, Sociology) and Cornell University (Ph.D., Adult Education). She and her family (Leland Glenna, Rural Sociology professor, and Lily, a 9th grader at Delta High) attend University Mennonite Church.

Dr. Prins would like us to take the survey at this link by Thursday, December 7th – https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfa4ZSyYR623x-LrB4JWT9OLJVT41sWm-DodMv2uABHG7vovg/viewform
