How Can Unitarian Universalists Respond to Populism? Right-wing populism is on the rise, threatening Unitarian Universalist values with its apocalyptic worldview and tendency to divide the world into a righteous people and a corrupt elite. But left-wing populism has also helped build democratic societies by pushing institutions to be more accountable. For the spring 2019 Minns Lecture series, Rev. Dr. Bossen will challenge us to ask how Unitarian Universalists can respond to populism and white supremacy in the age of Trump.

Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen is an activist, minister, and scholar of religion, race, and politics in the United States. He currently serves as the Interim Senior Minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston. He is working on a book on the religious dimensions of populism, Onward, Christian Soldiers: American Populism and the Religious Imagination. He shares sermons and other writings at https://www.colinbossen.

Dr. Anthony B. Pinn received his BA from Columbia University, Master of Divinity and PhD in the study of religion from Harvard University. He is currently the Agnes Cullen Arnold Professor of Humanities and professor of religion at Rice University. Pinn is the founding director of the Center for Engaged Research and Collaborative Learning (CERCL) also at Rice University. Pinn’s research interests include religion and culture; humanism; and hip hop culture. Pinn is also director of research for the Institute for Humanist Studies, a Washington DC-based think tank. https://www.anthonypinn.
