Religion at #2011ASA, a Dialogue

Over at Religion in American History Kelly Baker and I discuss religion panels and papers at this year’s American Studies Association. We even get into a comparison between the ASA and the American Academy of Religion. It was such a great back and forth that one post wasn’t enough. Find part 1 here and part 2 here.
