“Pipelines, Presbyteries, and the Doctrine of Discovery: Indigenous Voices on Christianity and U.S. Settler Colonialism.”

April 7 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EDT

From Sunday, April 7, 2019: Dr. Tisa Wenger, from Yale Divinity School, presents “Pipelines, Presbyteries, and the Doctrine of Discovery: Indigenous Voices on Christianity and U.S. Settler Colonialism.” Dr. Wenger’s interests include religious encounters in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century United States, especially the U.S. West; the cultural politics of religious freedom; and the intersections of race, religion, and empire in American history. Her current research asks how colonial encounters made and re-made both indigenous and white settler religion in the early national United States. Dr. Wenger is also interested in questions of how Christianity has determined the limits of religious freedom and what that means for Native Americans and indigenous religions.
