As part of the week-long residency centered around the continued development of her work in progress 'On Grace,' Anna Deavere Smith participates in this panel discussion with Professor E.J. Dionne, Imam Mohamed Majid, and Michael D. McCurry. The panel will discuss the concept of 'grace' as it is understood by different faiths, and as it operates -- or doesn't ? in politics, and will take questions from the audience.
This symposium, which is co-sponsored by The Mortara Center for International Studies and The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, is part of a week-long residency sponsored by The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics, a joint initiative of the Georgetown University Theater and Performance Studies Program and the School of Foreign Service.
The residency culminates in a March 18 staged reading of 'On Grace' in Georgetown's Gaston Hall.
