New College of Florida Presents ‘Religion in Sarasota’ Series

From Sarasota Magazine, September 24, 2019
New College of Florida will host a series of events throughout the 2019-2020 academic year promote knowledge, literacy and understanding about religion in Sarasota and the greater Tampa area as part of an initiative with the Mellon Foundation called “Connecting The Arts + Humanities on Florida’s Creative Coast.” The activities supported by the Mellon Foundation grant will bring together the academic exploration of religion, as studied at New College, and the way religion is lived and understood within the local community. The series will include conversations with local leaders, a lecture series by prominent scholars and religious leaders, and a film series on campus followed by a discussion of relevant religious themes with local religious leaders. The season kicks off with public events on campus this fall.
