Faith and Power – Latino Religious Politics Since 1945

A one-day symposium, both in-person and online via Zoom, bringing together historians from across the country and world to discuss the significance of Latino religious politics. We’ll discuss how broader currents involving immigration, refugee policies, de-industrialization, the rise of the religious left and right, and the Chicano, Puerto Rican, and immigrant rights movements spurred political engagement among Latino religious actors. Join us for what will be stimulating conversations on the intersections of religion and politics in Latino communities and how they’ve shaped struggles for justice in the twentieth century.
