Please join us in conversation about Candy Gunther Brown's provocative book, Debating Yoga and Mindfulness in Public Schools: Reforming Secular Education or Reestablishing Religionwhich examines the place of spiritual traditions in secular contexts in preparation for the author’s visit November 8, 2019.

About Candy Gunther Brown:
Brown is a historian and ethnographer of religion and culture. Her particular focus is the United States, understood within the broader frameworks of the Americas and global cultural flows. Her first book, The Word in the World: Evangelical Writing, Publishing, and Reading in America, 1789-1880 (University of North Carolina Press, 2004), assesses how evangelicals interacted with the burgeoning print market of the mid-nineteenth century. More about Brown can be found here.
