Congratulations to Yoanetsi Torres and Dina Alnabulsi, winners of the Sociology Undergraduate Research Grant! They will receive funding to support their research in conjunction with their faculty mentors (Ryan Talbert and Bhoomi Thakore) in the Spring 2023 semester.
Please check out this article from Religion News Service titled “In Branson, God and country serve as red, white, and blue comfort food,” featuring Associate Professor of Sociology Ruth Braunstein. In this article, Braunstein addresses the pushback on criticism of Christian nationalism from conservative Christians.
*Excerpt from article*
“There really is a much more sort of common and almost moderate seeming way of thinking about the United States that talks more broadly about something like Judeo-Christian values or the idea that, you know, why can’t we all just be, you know, good Americans and proud of the country and the flag,” Braunstein said.
