Join us on October 25, 2023 at 4 PM ET, for the 2023 Greenhoe Lecture. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required to attend in-person (Winn Center - 1044 Alta Vista Rd) or online (Zoom).
In the U.S. political and cultural environment, movements are expressing greater animosity toward their perceived opponents. This rise in affective polarization has a widespread effect, though it is often directed against marginalized groups, such as transgender persons and religious minorities. Dr. Gray will discuss the concepts and dynamics of liberal tolerance and toxic theologies. He will draw upon research on transgender Jews and on interactions with religious “hate groups.”
Dr. Gray will be at Louisville Seminary to deliver the lecture in person with an option for remote participants to join virtually. Registration is required whether attending in-person or online.
