The Conversation

Michael Barkun

Michael Barkun

Michael Barkun, professor emeritus of political science, was cited in the Conversation article, "The end of the world is coming – just not this Saturday." Barkun calls the mix of biblical literalism, geopolitics, and astrology “improvisational millennialism” – an attempt to reduce the cacophony of world events into a single comprehensive narrative of higher meaning. 09/25/17
