It’s January, which means our minds turn back to classes. To help you think about some of the most salient issues in the field, Religion and American Culture: A Journal of Interpretation and Cambridge University Press are pleased to offer free access to the journal’s two-part Forum on The Religious Situation.
Curated by Kathryn Lofton and Ari Y. Kelman, the essays look at a 1968 volume meant to cover the major topics of the day, with an eye to whether the original arguments stand the test of time and to offer perspectives on how things have changed and how they have not. Essays by Rebecca Bartel, Lila Corwin Berman, Jonathan Ebel, Joseph Tucker Edmonds, Richard Flory, Angie Heo, Kathleen Holscher, Ari Kelman, Kathryn Lofton, John Modern, Irene Oh, Jana Reiss, and Joseph Winters cover topics from the Catholic crisis and black power to institutions and taxation, from abortion and civil religion to ritual and secularization.
This month, both Forums are made available to everyone. They can be found using the link below and are in issues 29(1) and 29(2). Please be sure to check them out and use them in the coming semester!
