Inaugural Deanís Colloquium on Religion and Public Culture      "Are Mormons the New Catholics and Jews? Mitt Romney and the Political State of the Union."

American voters have only once selected a non-Protestant to serve in the nationís highest office. In a year in which a Mormon may for the first time become a major-party presidential candidate, this panel discussion will consider the possibility of a Mormon presidency, explore questions about religious tests and high office, and discuss attitudes towards the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS).

FEATURING: Kristine Haglund, editor of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought and contributor to By Common Consent, a Mormon blog, whose research interests include the history of women and children in the LDS Church; and Stephen Prothero, Boston University professor of religion, contributor to CNNís Belief Blog, and author of God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions of the WorldĖAnd Why Their Differences Matter (HarperOne, 2010).

MODERATED BY: Alan Wolfe, Boston College professor of political science and founding director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College.
