Event description

Description

Following a century of violent anti-religious campaigns, China is now filled with new temples, churches and mosques — as well as cults, sects and politicians trying to harness religion for their own ends. What does the return of religion mean for the future of the world’s newest superpower? Acclaimed journalist Ian Johnson will address this question in the Sixth Robert F. Ellsworth Memorial Lecture.

Ian Johnson is a Pulitzer Prize-winner, and has written for the Wall Street Journal, The New York Review of Books and The New York Times. His latest book, “The Souls of China: The Return of Religion After Mao,” explores the explosion of faith and what it means to be Chinese and how to live an ethical life in a country that is searching for new guideposts.

The event will take place at the GPS Robinson Auditorium (directions). Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure. There will be signage to direct you from Pangea to GPS.
