“In God We Trust,” “God Bless America,” and “One Nation Under God”: These ubiquitous slogans testify to the continuing impact of religion on the American public sphere.  According to a 2014 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, 89% of Americans professed belief in “God or a universal spirit”- the highest percentage in the developed world.  This high degree of national theological consensus goes hand in hand, however, with an astonishing degree of religious diversity- the highest in the world.

This colloquium explores both the diversity and ubiquity of faith in America, and the complex ways in which religion intersects with American culture.
