Teaching, Religion, Politics

Welcome to the Wabash Center's blog series:

Teaching, Religion, Politics

Current events have pressed the conversation about teaching religion and politics to the foreground in many classrooms across higher education. The Wabash Center is seeking to be responsive to the need for faculty conversation about this topic and to provide resources for teaching religion and politics in contemporary higher education classrooms. 

Over the course of the next year, weekly blog posts from a team of more than fifteen writers will address this topic. We look forward to their posts and encourage comments and conversations about "Teaching, Religion, Politics.”

As we finish this semester, it might be a good exercise to look back and see what worked, what didn’t quite work, and what will never work. Student evaluations often convey needs or anger or unfocused frustrations; very little that can actually teach us, so we must ponder our ...

There are at least two uses of the phrase “good enough.” One meaning commonly found in public discourse denotes minimal, less than best effort. The other meaning, a more technical one from psychology, requires a focused discipline of self-awareness that guards against unhealthy perfectionism (“I can and I will be ...
