The Center for the Study of Religion and Society and the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Notre Dame hosted Robert N. Bellah, PhD, for a special lecture on March 19, 2013.
Bellah is the Elliott Professor of Sociology emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley. One of the most influential sociologists today, his books, Beyond Belief, The Broken Covenant, Habits of the Heart and The Good Society, shape the discipline. His most recent book, Religion in the Human Evolution, continues that tradition.
Bellah began his vocation as a scholar of Japan. Tokugawa Religion and a more recent collection of essays, Imaging Japan, focus on this society's cultural roots in relation to modernity.
The College of Arts and Letters is the University of Notre Dame's oldest and largest college. We believe that its students, faculty, and programs meld the best aspects of a residential liberal arts college, a major research university, and a Catholic institution of international standing. The College's 20 departments span three divisions—the arts, the social sciences, and the humanities—all of which contribute to the vibrant life of the College.
