To Bring the Good News to All Nations: Evangelical Influence on Human Rights and U.S. Foreign Relations
Lauren Frances Turek, Trinity University, in conversation with SMU's Dr. Kate Carté

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Chicago
Local Time: Tuesday, September 8, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Supporting missionaries from the U.S. to nations around the world is a concept familiar to almost any American who sat in an evangelical congregation pew from the 1960s to the 90s and even today. How has this outreach of American evangelism affected the Latin American, African, Asian and Eastern European nations where missionaries flocked? And have the missionaries and their congregations at home shaped U.S. foreign policy and human rights? Historian Lauren Frances Turek examines how “Christian foreign policy” groups lobbied to aid friendly regimes and sanction those that stifled evangelism or persecuted Christians. Kate Carté, associate professor of history at SMU, will lead this Council conversation.

Lauren Frances Turek is an assistant professor of history and director of the Museum Studies Minor at Trinity University. A diplomatic historian by training, she has research interests in the history of U.S. foreign relations, religion, and the international human rights movement. Turek received her undergraduate degree in history from Vassar College and her M.A. in museum studies from New York University. She received her M.A. and Ph.D. in history from the University of Virginia. Her first book is “To Bring the Good News to All Nations: Evangelical Influence on Human Rights and U.S. Foreign Relations.”

Dr. Kate Carté is an Associate Professor of History specializing in early American and Atlantic history, particularly the history of religion. Prior to coming to SMU in 2012, she was an associate professor of history and Rothrock Fellow at Texas A&M University. Her current project, Religion Transformed, examines the impact of the American Revolution on religion and politics in the Anglo-American world. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her B.A. from Haverford College.

 

Moderated by Dr. Kate Carté, associate professor of history at Southern Methodist University, specializing in early American and Atlantic history, particularly the history of religion.
