Just when we thought the pandemic was almost over a new delta variant strain of covid is causing infections and hospitalizations to climb. As a result, some leaders, lawmakers, and businesses are mandating that every adult be vaccinated. But that is not sitting well with the unvaccinated residents who have questions and concerns.

Fordham University Political Science Professor Nicholas Tampio joins Fordham Conversations host Robin Bobbie Shannon to discuss why he believes a mask mandate could cause a backlash. He co-wrote The Washington Post article "Vaccine mandates will backfire. People will resist even more."

06/15/2021

The participation of Frente Popular Agricola del Peru or Agricultural People’s Front of Peru (FREPAP) in Peruvian national politics arose from the combination of American expansionism, the growth of evangelical Christianity, and the emergence of a strong Israelite movement in South America.

Questions and concerns have emerged about the cult-like organization and activities of FREPAP and other Peruvian evangelical groups. Although their mainstream impact is not significant, their presence, force, and participation in Latin American politics cannot be ignored.

Using a theological and sociological framework, Duffy Fellow Carlos Orbegoso Barrios will draw conclusions on the future of FREPAP and the impact of similar parties and movements in Latin America.
