Religion can threaten or support a democratic polity. What is the proper role of religious conviction and discourse in the public realm? Does the constitutional prohibition against the establishment of religion entail the creation of a thoroughly secular civil order, or should religious as well as secular citizens bring their concerns into the public square on an equal footing? Professor Feldman lectures from Burlington, Vermont using videoconferencing technology. This approach allows for a real-time interactive discussion between the instructor and the students.
