The History department at Penn would like to announce the upcoming 2015 Steven Allen Memorial Kaplan Lecture, this year entitled "Taking Religion Seriously." The panel will feature Professors Lila Corwin Berman (Temple), David Silverman (George Washington University), and Jamal J. Elias (Upenn) with comments by Professor Sally Gordon (Upenn). The panelists will speak on how they and their fields of history and religious studies have grappled with religion historically and will present some ideas on what it means to "take religion seriously" and how we might begin to do so. The panel will take place on March 24, 2015 from 4:30-6pm in the Class of '78 Pavilion (sixth floor of Van Pelt Library). The panel promises to be interesting; we hope you can attend.
