The Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture (RAAC) just released the proceedings from its June 2022 gathering:
In June, many of the top scholars studying and teaching about religion in North America gathered in Indianapolis for the Seventh Biennial Conference on Religion and American Culture. Proceedings from the sessions are now available online! Topics include: White Christian Nationalism in the United States; Religio-Racial Nationalisms in Global Contexts; Refugees and New Immigrants in the United States; Resonance and the Good Life; Religious Practice in a Digital Culture; Digital Scholarship and Teaching; Reproductive Rights; and Religious Freedom in the Age of Pandemic.
Among this insightful set of conversation-starters is my own contribution drawing upon insights from the National Abortion Attitudes Study. Talking to ordinary Americans about abortion + religion reveals the limits of absolutes and imperative to broaden our categories.
