Larycia Hawkins, the former Wheaton College professor who caused a furor when she declared Muslims and Christians worship the same God, has taken a new position at the University of Virginia.
Hawkins, a political science professor, will join the school’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, focusing on religion and race. Her fellowship is named for 19th century Algerian Abd el-Kader, a Muslim leader who advocated for intercultural dialog.
