Please join us for a conversation with Professor Heather Curtis about her new book, Holy Humanitarians (Harvard, 2018) and the relationship of evangelicals, past and present, to global humanitarianism. Professor Curtis writes about how religion has shaped responses to humanitarian disasters, economic crises, and illness from the late-nineteenth century to the present. By exploring the ways American Christians of earlier generations endeavored to relieve suffering, she uncovers the seeds of today’s heated debates about the about the practice of philanthropy, the politics of poverty relief, and the ethics of medicine.
