Garfield Forum for Undergraduates

The Howard M. Garfield Forum is an annual mini-conference that is focused on a topic at the intersection of religion, ethics, and public life, designed in particular for Stanford undergraduates. The forum is sponsored through the generosity of Religious Studies alumnus Howard Garfield and organized by the Department of Religious Studies. Past topics have included "The Ethics of War in Christian and Islamic Perspectives," "Transitional Justice,” "Religion and the Presidency," and "Understanding ISIS."
