Mitt Romney, Mormonism, and the 2012 Election

Professor Perry will discuss the influence of religion on the 2012 presidential election. Mitt Romney became the first Mormon to earn a presidential nomination from a major party. This is remarkable considering the historic discrimination of Mormons in America. Perry will provide insights from his forthcoming book Mitt Romney, Mormonism, and the 2012 Election, regarding what Romney’s nomination means for America, Mormons, and the relationship between religion and politics. Nexus is a seminar series presented by Utica College faculty in which they discuss their research interests and scholarly pursuits.
