Lincoln (Neb.) - Nov. 10, 1997 - Kent Greenawalt apparently isn't afraid to take on controversial topics.
Common wisdom says not to discuss religion or politics, but Greenawalt, Cardozo professor of jurisprudence at Columbia University, will tackle both subjects at 10 a.m. Nov. 14 when he lectures on "Religion and Government: Some Controversial Connections" at the University of Nebraska Law College.
Greenawalt is the author or co-author of 10 books, most recently "Fighting Words" and "Private Consciences and Public Reasons" in 1995. A member of the law faculty at Columbia since 1965, he was a law clerk to Justice John M. Harlan of the U.S. Supreme Court and deputy solicitor general in the Department of Justice during the Nixon administration.
His lecture will be in the auditorium of Ross McCollum Hall on East Campus. It is free and open to the public.
Greenawalt's appearance is sponsored by the College of Law
and the philosophy department in the College of Arts and
Sciences. For the philosophy department, he also will present
"From the Bottom Up: Faithful Performance and the Meaning of
Informal Instructions," at 3:30 p.m. Nov. 13 in Room 1007 of
Oldfather Hall on City Campus.
