Religious Difference and The Common Good
How and why have we become in some cases tolerant of religious difference and intolerant of it in other cases? How and why can we benefit from religious difference and work for the common good?
Location: Culver Center of the Arts
7:00 PM | Film Screening: Generation Wealth
Lauren Greenfield’s postcard from the edge of the American Empire captures a portrait of a materialistic, workaholic, image-obsessed culture. Simultaneously autobiographical and historical essay, the film bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream, and the personal costs of late-stage capitalism, narcissism, and greed.
All events free and open to the public.
Complimentary parking will be available in Lot #24. View campus map.
Sponsored by the Center for Ideas and Society and a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
