Tonight at 7PM in the GSU’s 2nd floor Mecalf Hall we are hosting bestselling authors and BU professors Andrew Bacevich and Stephen Prothero for a discussion on the role played by religious ideas in U.S. public policy today, from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the “Ground Zero Mosque” debate. This interactive event will be moderated by Dean of Students Kenneth Elmore, and will be streamed live online. The event is free and open to the public
Tonight, a panel of Boston Unviersity experts will examine the controversy surrounding the proposed Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero. According to BU Today, the event is an “effort to dispel what the speakers call Americans’ mistaken beliefs about Islam.”
The Ground Zero Mosque Controversy: What You Need to Know begins at 7 p.m. in room 222 of BU’s College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).
The event is free and open to the public.
