Islam and Democracy 

Thank you to everyone who came to the lecture series this past week. At the forum, Dr. Shan Sappleton, assistant professor of political science at UW-Platteville, discussed the topic of religion and politics—specifically, the fundamental question of whether Islam, per se, is inconsistent with democracy. Sappleton’s lecture will focused on the case study of Senegal, a democracy with a 94 percent Muslim population.
