Religion in the Roaring Twenties (Fall, 2018)

This study looks at the way in which religious communities in the United States in the 1920s responded to the challenges of the decade: political isolationism, anti-immigrationism, racial violence, and widening economic disparity.  The way in which religious communities—especially Protestant churches—engaged these issues in the 1920s reveal a deep-seated anxiety about the identity of the nation and the place of religion in it.  What might religious communities today learn from this experience?
