Religion, Race, and American Evangelicalism

For many Americans, both scholars and faith communities alike, one of the truly confounding tasks in contemporary settings, is how to define and categorize the nature and scope of American evangelicalism. Such a task is all the more complicated when one asks, “which” evangelicals—a nuance tethered to demographic considerations, namely along the lines of race, sex, and even shifting theological commitments. In light of this, this course has two goals: 1) introducing students to major markers of American evangelical thought and historical development; 2) interpreting the shifts of American evangelicalism as a feature of race relations and political arrangements in the 21st century.
