Assistant Professor of Religious Studies Damon Berry has published a new book, “Christianity and the Alt-Right: Exploring the Relationship.” The book’s publisher, Routledge, describes it as “a must-read for those interested in religion in America, religion and politics, evangelicalism, and religion and race.”
People’s lives are often rooted in religious worlds that profoundly affect their experiences, politics, ethical, and aesthetic sensibilities. Our religious studies program educates students about the diversity of religious worlds and diversity within religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Shinto, and religion in the United States. We also focus on the key role religion plays in history, politics, culture, and in diverse areas of life by teaching a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches.
Spend time investigating the intricacies of religious systems, practices, and expression, as well as their impact around the world and on modern events. Many students who study abroad and find their religious studies classes provide a wonderful foundation for their understanding of the cultures and people with whom they interact.
