Dr Eric Kaufman (Birkbeck): Sacralisation by Stealth?: Religion, Demography and Politics in the 21st Century
Dr Eric Kaufman will speak to the subject of his latest book Sacralisation by Stealth?: Religion, Demography and Politics in the 21st Century, in which he will address processes rooted in the late twentieth century that became manifest in its last decades: the rise of the Christian right in the USA, the influence of orthodox Jews in Israel and the Disapora, and the connections between religion and politics in Muslim societies.
