Red House Dinner Series: 11/8 with Prof. Terrence Johnson
Our first Red House Dinner Series event of the 2017-18 year will take place on Wednesday, November 8, from 6 – 7:30 PM. Our guest will be Professor Terrence Johnson, Associate Professor of Religion and Government. Professor Johnson’s research focuses on African American religious thought, the intersections of religion and race, and philosophies of democracy and justice.
He teaches the popular African American Studies course “Blacks and Jews in America.” Johnson is an affiliate member of the Department of African American Studies, a faculty fellow at the Berkeley Center, and serves on the executive committee of the program for Jewish Civilization. His book Tragic Soul Life: W.E.B. DuBois and the Moral Crisis Facing American Democracy was published by Oxford University Press in 2012.
About the Red House Dinner Series:
The Dinner Series brings together Georgetown faculty and students in informal, intimate conversations around innovative approaches in higher education. Last year’s dinner guests included Dr. Marcia Chatelain, Professor Cal Newport, Professor Marc M. Howard, and many more faculty across campus. Dinners are capped at around 15 students, to allow for exciting conversations that may not happen in the classroom or office hours.
