    Whitehead, Andrew L., and Samuel L. Perry (2020)

    Documents how Christian nationalism shapes what Americans think about who they are as a people, what their future should look like, & how they should get there. Americans' stance toward Christian nationalism provides powerful insight into what they think about immigration, Islam, gun control, police shootings, atheists, gender roles, & many other political issues-very much including who they want in the White House.

  • Bridging sociology of religion to transition to adulthood: The emerging role of religion in young adults’ lives
    Jung, Gowoon, and Hyunjoon Park (2020)
    Social Compass 67:3: 428-443.

    The previous literature’s exclusive focus on religiosity at the expense of institutional & social aspects of religion & under-appreciation of heterogeneous roles of religion for different racial/ethnic groups have contributed to the prevalent view that minimizes the relevance of religion for the transition to adulthood. We know little about how religion interacts with social class, gender, race/ethnicity, & immigrant status in shaping timing, duration, & connections of various transition markers.

  • Birth Control Battles. How Race and Class Divided American Religion.
    Wilde, Melissa J. (2019)
    Berkeley: University of California Press.

    The push to liberalize positions on contraception was tied to complex views of race, immigration, & manifest destiny among America’s major religions. Taking us from the Depression era, when support for the eugenics movement saw birth control as an act of duty for less desirable groups, to the 1960s, by which time most groups had forgotten the reasons behind their stances on contraception, the author explains how reproductive politics divided American religion.

    Examines divergent trajectories of religious governance in Madrid & Barcelona, 2 cities that have pursued distinct approaches to accommodating religious diversity despite being located in the same national context. Madrid has dealt with religious diversity under the broader rubric of immigration & culture, and has been passive & ‘hands-off’ in its approach; Barcelona has demarcated religion from other cultural issues & developed a more proactive and ‘hands-on’ approach to governing religious diversity.

    European Sociological Review 30:2: 194-206.

    Ethnic minority adolescents, especially those with Muslim parents, are more religious than majority adolescents. Transmission of more private aspects of religiosity is more successful among ethnic minority families compared with majority families. No minority–majority differences are found in the intergenerational transmission of public dimensions of religiosity. Beyond the influence of parents, the religiosity of adolescents is positively associated with the average religiosity of their peers in school class.

    Connor, Phillip (2011)

    Most findings indicate a null relationship between religion & economic outcomes. However, in instances where a significant relationship does exist, non-Protestant immigrants suffer the greatest economic penalty, particularly among non-Protestants who are not regularly participating in a religious organization. In contrast, non-Protestants who regularly participate have a higher likelihood of employment & higher earnings than their non-participating counterparts. This paper extends previous literature in specifying that the religion as resource hypothesis operates best for non-Protestant immigrants who are actively involved in their religious organizations.
