Scholarly Scoop Fri., 3/6, hosted by Seniors in the Park – “Making Our Selves at Home: The Religion of Earliest Whitewater”

Friday, March 6; 10:30 am 

Making Our Selves at Home: The Religion of Earliest Whitewater – The settlement of Whitewater was an expression of the religion of the settlers and, consequently, their entwined white, American Protestant and masculine identities. In many ways the religion of the settlers prompted their actions, framed their thoughts and deeds, and permeated their hopes and plans for their town. Their religion shaped their perceptions of the local landscape and embedded their daily existence with grand significance. Speaker: Michael P. Gueno, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. He specializes in American religious history and Native American religions, in particular.
