Associate Professor Religious Studies Department

My research focuses on the imbrication of religious and racialized discourses that shape and inform logics of exclusion and violence. I have published in the Journal of Hate Studies, Religion & Politics, Security Journal, and Nova Religio. My first monograph, adapted from my dissertation, is titled Blood and Faith: Christianity in American White Nationalism and was published in 2017 by Syracuse University Press. My most recently completed book project is titled Christianity & The Alt-Right: Exploring the Relationship (https://www.routledge.com/Christianity-and-the-Alt-Right-Exploring-the-Relationship/Berry/p/book/9780367340551). I am also working on research for a book on the New Apostolic Reformation and evangelical support for Donald Trump, which is being developed from my 2020 article on that topic published in a special edition of Nova ReligioI also contributed an entry in the forthcoming Encyclopedia of Religious Ethics on the topic of New Religious Movements and ethics.

I was also a guest recently on a podcast called The Unpacked Project and spoke at The University of Notre Dame's Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights [video here].
