Film: "First Reformed"

Location: Browning Cinema

First Reformed Film Image

This critically acclaimed film by renowned director Paul Schrader explores the dark intersection of lost faith on a planet in peril. Considered “a summation of Schrader’s four-decade long career,” the film combines all of the director’s interests into a masterful work about a lonely priest (Ethan Hawke, in one of the best performances of his storied career), who adopts an alienated environmentalist’s martyrdom as the 250th anniversary of his small parish approaches.…

Lecture: "Religion and Patronage in Divided Societies: Insights from an Experimental Study of Political Behavior in Lebanon"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.  A lecture by Melani Cammett

What is the relationship between clientelism and “identity politics” in driving political behavior in developing countries, particularly where patronage structures political life and identity-based cleavages are politicized? This talk will address questions including: Does clientelism “buy” support? Do shared ethnic or religious identities between candidates and voters garner political support, or do they serve as cues for potential access to more clientelist benefits? Cammett’s talk is based on a survey experiment in Lebanon, conducted with Dominika Kruszewska of Harvard University and Sami Atallah of the Lebanese Center for Policy Studies, aimed at testing the relative influence of clientelism and religion on citizen political behavior.
