Julie Ingersoll, Religion and American Culture, especially fundamentalism and religion and politics. I speak to community groups about the religious dimensions of current issues from a perspective aimed at fostering understanding of diverse views beyond polarizing talking points, rather than advocacy of particular views or policies. Previous public talks have focused on questions such as: "How did religion play into American’s founding?" "What’s at stake for Creationists in their battle with evolution?" "Does Tax policy have religious dimensions?" "Where did the “Bible Belt” come from?" "What are the religious dimensions to the “tea party'?" "What is the relationship between religion and violence?"
