Christian Nationalism and Internationalism: How Religion Shapes (And Has Shaped) U.S. Politics and Foreign Policy

Speakers: Lauren Turek, Ph.D. and Gina Tam, Ph.D.

In the United States, white Evangelical Protestants exercise considerable political power, functioning as a strong and unified bloc on a range of hot button domestic cultural issues. Evangelicals have not limited their activism to the domestic sphere, however. This talk will trace the rise of the Christian right (and Christian nationalism) in U.S. foreign relations, exploring the range of foreign policy concerns that motivated evangelical activism and efforts to align global politics with their particular interpretation of Christianity, including religious liberty and persecution abroad, communism, human trafficking, and more.
