The Golkin Room, Houston Hall

ASSOCIATED WITH THE SECULAR LEFT after the French Revolution and in our day, universal human rights in the 1940s were to a surprising extent associated with the Christian right. These lectures explore how and why this connection developed-and its legacies in our time. The MELLON DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES is sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Pennsylvania Press, the Penn Law School, the Department of History at Penn, the Perry World House, and the Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism. The 2014 series runs from November 18 to 20 in the Golkin Room in Houston Hall at the University of Pennsylvania, located at 3417 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA 19104. All lectures in the series are free and open to the public.
