2020 Keston Center Spring Panel Lecture: The Once and Future Russia

NOTICE: Due to Baylor University's decision to extend Spring Break through March 20, we have decided to cancel the Spring Panel Lecture. Thank you for your interest in the event and for your consideration in attending. We will host a Fall Lecture event that will be announced at a future date.

Whether the conversation is about geopolitics, international economics, religion, or social issues, Russia remains top of mind for world leaders, the press, and interested individuals around the globe. On March 19, the Keston Center for Religion, Politics, and Society proudly welcomes a panel of experts to discuss, "The Once and Future Russia: Religion, Politics, and Society."
