Professor Thomas has curated a collection of essays as an online journal supplement for American Religion. The essays will appear on the journal's website every Monday and Wednesday for the next few weeks. Professor Thomas describes the forum as follows:
Collectively, these essays dovetail neatly with recent essays by scholars such as Kathryn Lofton and Kathryn Gin Lum that have ruminated on the relationship between history and religious studies. They also contribute to new work that interrogates differences in what counts as “religion” at home and abroad. They are thus part of an exciting new trend, exemplified by the American Religion project, that views American religion through its shadows, pursues it across national borders, and hears it sung in foreign tongues.
