The University of Prince Edward Island will host Research on Tap with a presentation titled “Render unto Caesar: Catholics and the Alt-Right” on Thursday, March 7, at 6 pm at the Upstreet Brewery Taproom, 41 Allen St., Charlottetown, PEI. 

Dr. Ariana Patey, assistant professor and acting chair, Department of Religious Studies, is the guest speaker for the event.

“The Internet has facilitated the creation of an Alt-Right movement that includes Catholics,” she said. “This talk explores the ways in which such groups understand and use Catholicism (and the Internet) to attract followers to extremist and white supremacist movements.”

Research on Tap is a discussion series featuring UPEI researchers and is open to students, faculty, staff, and the general public. There is no charge to attend. All are welcome to attend.
