About the Center on Religion and Culture

Located at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus, the Center on Religion and Culture confronts the questions arising at the intersection of religious traditions and contemporary culture. Drawing on New York’s leading role in intellectual and literary life, the visual and performing arts, politics, media, diplomacy, and humanitarian activities, CRC programs aim to promote intellectual enrichment and affirm Fordham’s leadership role as a shaping force in the public discourse.

CRC explores the complex relationship between religion and contemporary life in a manner that advances beyond the caricatures and misapprehensions that often form public perceptions and color media coverage about faith issues. CRC programs directly engage members of the public from the Greater New York area who seek a deeper understanding of religion’s place in society.
