Dr. Stahl holds a doctorate in history from the University of Michigan and is currently a fellow in the Department of Medical Ethics at the University of Pennsylvania.   As a public intellectual, Dr. Stahl has contributed to the Washington Post, Huffington Post, and Religion & Politics.

A reception will follow Dr. Stahl’s lecture and copies of her recent book, Enlisting Faith: How the Military Chaplaincy Shaped Religion and State in Modern America (Harvard University Press) will be available for purchase.  This event is free and open to the community.
