    As Americans, we have long associated religious extremism with Islamic terrorism. Unfortunately, history tells us that any religion is prone to extremism. Religion has also been linked to ethno-centric extremism in many cultures. In the US this has become known most recently as Christian Nationalism. We are also seeing a rise in extremism in countries that either became democratic civil societies post WWII or recently emerging civil societies. The move toward nationalism linked to religious extremism has been linked to violence as well as the election of authoritarian rulers whose very actions violate the core values of a civil society; the freedoms of speech, religion, press, gathering and protest.

    This urgent matter will be the topic for our program –on Thursday, January 18th @ 7 PM ET. We are excited about our panelists!

    A new war emerged after WWII. It wasn’t fought on the ground or air but in space. The Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union lasted from 1945-1991 and as the two nations battled an ideological war, they would also fight one for superiority of the Final Frontier. There were incredible feats of courage, ingenuity, and technology as well as deception and espionage. Join us at the table for an intriguing conversation.

    This program will be conducted as a discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
