Arizona State University faculty member to deliver March 26 lecture

The religion department in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences will present a lecture by Keon McGuire, assistant professor at Arizona State University, March 26 at 7 p.m. in Room 115 of Peabody Hall.

The lecture, “Religious Afterlife: Race, Gender and Religion among Black Undergraduates,” is part of the Religion and the Common Good seminar series and open to the public.

McGuire will discuss how narratives concerning institutional and organized religion’s declining significance in American life in general and among young adults specifically matter—or don’t—in the lives of black undergraduate students.

McGuire is an assistant professor of higher and postsecondary education in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and a faculty affiliate with the School of Social Transformation.
