This event is in the past.

The Humanities Center is proud to present as part of its Brown Bag Series, a talk by Ronald Brown, Political Science, Associate Professor; R. Khari Brown, Sociology
Using four national probability studies between the years of 2010 and 2015, this study examines how religious beliefs help explain American support for or opposition to governmental efforts to protect the environment. We do so by investigating how race moderates this relationship. We find that religious beliefs associates with and likely informs the environmental policy attitudes of Non-Hispanic Whites. We have less evidence that the same holds true for Hispanics and Blacks.
These talks are free and open to the public! We also provide free coffee, tea and cake!
