Dr. Stewart’s lecture On the Agnotology of Narrative Islam: Religion in the Subjunctive Mode will begin at 4 p.m. Oct. 24 at WKU’s Faculty House. Admission is free and open to the public.

“WKU has been a leader in Kentucky in the study of religion for many years, and we want to celebrate that tradition with the launch of this series, ” said Dr. Eric Bain-Selbo, head of the Department of Philosophy and Religion. “We thought it would be neat to bring back someone who is a graduate of our program. Tony Stewart is an internationally recognized scholar and very prominent in the field.”

The Study of Religion Lecture Series also celebrates the launch of WKU’s master of arts degree in Religious Studies, the only one of its kind in Kentucky, and WKU’s undergraduate major in Asian Religions and Cultures, which is in its second year.
