Public Atheism: An American History

Lecture Description

A broad examination of how infidels, atheists, and freethinkers have fared in American public life. Critical markers include: revolutionary deism in the mold of Tom Paine, the formal organization of “secularism” from the 1850s to 1880s, and the emergence of spectacular forms of public atheism since the 1920s.
