- Legislating International Religious Freedom
- The John W. Kluge Center and the American Academy of Religion presented panel discussions on America's religious origins and on international religious freedom at the Library of Congress. The first panel, "Writing the Story of America's Religious Origins," was cosponsored by the National History Center. Participants included Susan Jacoby, Mark Noll, Steve R. Prothero and Jonathan D. Sarna. Catherine L. Albanese presided. The second panel, "Legislating International Religious Freedom" was cosponsored by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. Participants included Tom Farr, Allen D. Hertzke, Elizabeth H. Prodromou and Winnifred Fallers Sullivan. Timothy S. Shah presided. The American Academy of Religion (AAR) is the world's largest association of scholars who research or teach topics related to religion. The 2006 AAR Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., from Nov. 18 to 21, included hundreds of forums. The National History Center promotes the study and teaching of all fields of history, as well as the advancement of historical knowledge in government, business and the public at large. The center provides the historical context necessary to better understand today's events. The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life delivers timely, impartial information to national opinion leaders on issues at the intersection of religion and public affairs; it also serves as a neutral venue for discussions of these matters. The forum is a project of the Pew Research Center.
