The Howard M. Garfield Forum is an annual mini-conference focused on a topic at the intersection of religion, ethics, and public life, and designed with Stanford undergraduates especially in mind. The Forum is supported by the generosity of Religious Studies alumnus and San Francisco attorney, Howard Garfield, and organized by the Department of Religious Studies. Past topics have included "Transitional Justice," "Religion and the Presidency," and "Understanding ISIS." A video of the 2016 forum, on "Religious Extremism and the Future of Liberal Societies," can be found here.
