Status of Racial and Ethnic Minorities in the Profession Committee
What is the place of the scholar of religion in disrupting or perpetuating the prevailing discourse in American political culture? A panel of leading scholars and journalists will engage the media-driven political narratives about religious and racial identities that emerged in the 2016 US national election. The panel will pay particular attention to the subtexts and lacunae in these narratives and media choices in reporting.
