Robert D. Putnam was the 2006 recipient of the Skytte Prize and has
served as an adviser to presidents and national leaders around the
world. He has written more than a dozen books, including Bowling Alone
and Making Democracy Work, both among the most cited publications in
the social sciences in the last half century. The London Sunday Times
has called him "the most influential academic in the world today."
Putnam's most recent book, American Grace, co-authored with David
Campbell of Notre Dame, focuses on the role of religion in American
public life. Based on data from two of the most comprehensive national
surveys on religion and civic engagement ever conducted, American
Grace is the winner of the American Political Science Association's
2011 Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award for the best book on government,
politics, or international affairs.
This event is free and open to the public.
