What is a caucus?
A caucus is an interest-based network of ASA members. Caucuses sponsor panels, hold social and business meetings, and provide opportunitites for members with similar interests to come together, in person and in cyberspace. For more, check out the ASA website.
What is this caucus?
This caucus grew out of a session on teaching religion in the American Studies classroom at ASA 2002 in Houston. The enthusiam for the session led to the founding of the Religion and American Culture Caucus. We aim to bring scholars together to discuss teaching and research at the intersection of American religion and American Studies, both broadly understood.
We have members whose primary disciplinary affiliations are in American Studies, History, Religious Studies, English, and many more fields of study.
