I'm posting here quickly a note from Philip Goff of the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture at IUPUI, announcing a new online forum associated with the journal Religion and American Culture. The first forum features some great short essays by Sylvester Johnson, Kathryn Gin Lum, and Rhys Williams:
From: Philip Goff
Ever interested in creating and sustaining a culture of conversation among scholars working in American religion, the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture (IUPUI) is pleased to announce an online version of its popular FORUM section that appears annually in the journal "Religion & American Culture: A Journal of Interpretation." This online forum will appear monthly. Notable scholars will wrestle in 1500 words with a topic or question. Readers can then enter the discussion with comments.
The first Online Forum has been posted. Pieces by Sylvester Johnson, Kathryn Gin Lum, and Rhys Williams tackle the subject about what "American" means in the field of American religious studies and how we might continue to think about the term. We invite you to read these thoughtful essays and enter the conversation
