During the lecture, R.R. Reno will outline the changing cultural and political landscape. Concerns about oppression, discrimination, and over-consolidation are giving way to anxieties about deconsolidation, vulnerability, and disintegration. This foretells as the opening of a new chapter in American political life.

Reno is the editor of First Things magazine. He was formerly a professor of theology and ethics at Creighton University. He is the author of several books including Fighting the Noonday Devil, a theological commentary on the Book of Genesis in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible series. His work ranges widely in systematic and moral theology, as well as in controverted questions of biblical interpretation.
