Members of the Rutgers University Community:

This is a reminder that Dr. James Turner Johnson, Distinguished Professor, Department ofReligion, School of Arts and Sciences, has been named the 2015 recipient of the University’s Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award. I cordially encourage you to attend the special award ceremony and lecture on Tuesday,  September 29th, at 5:00 p.m., in the Scholarly Communications Center Teleconference/Lecture Hall, Alexander Library, College Avenue Campus. Dr. Johnson will give a talk entitled “The Role of the Study of Religion in a Secular University and a Secular Society.” Immediately following the lecture, a reception will be held in Dr. Johnson’s honor. The event is open to all. Attached is a flyer for you to post or distribute.

I am delighted that Dr. Johnson has been selected as the recipient of the Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award. He wholly represents the ideals of this singular recognition named in honor of a scholar and intellectual who made deep and lasting contributions to Rutgers and the world. I hope you will join me in congratulating Dr. Johnson at the lecture and reception. I look forward to seeing you at what will certainly prove to be a fascinating presentation and a wonderful University event.
