Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall , Room 407 66 West 12th Street , New York, NY 10011

** This event was postponed from March 14 due to snow and has been rescheduled for April 27.**

Each semester, the Religious Studies program at Eugene Lang College presents a roundtable where scholars working various areas of religious studies, including Lang/New School faculty and often including students and alumni as well, come together for presentations and lively conversation around an organizing theme.
This spring's theme is Literary Journalism and Religion, featuring presentations from: Thomas Biery (Lang) on his first experiences of literary journalism as a student and how it relates to his work now in the Journalism + Design program.

Scott Korb (Lang) on the collection Radiant Truths and why the genre of literary journalism is particularly useful for writing about religion.

Jennifer Percy (author, Demon Camp) discussing her research and writing on faith as symptom of or response to war, PTSD, and social malaise.

Refreshments and a discussion moderated by Mark Larrimore, program director of Religious Studies, will follow the presentations.
