McConnell Center welcomes Dr. Eric McDaniel to discuss The Continuing Crusade: American Religious Exceptionalism and the Future of American Politics.
Professor McDaniel is an Associate Professor in the Department of Government and the co-director of the Politics of Race and Ethnicity Lab at the University of Texas at Austin College of Liberal Arts. His research examines how the intersection of race and religion influence the American political landscape. His book, Politics in the Pews: The Political Mobilization of Black Churches, provides an explanation for why some Black churches choose to engage the political world while others do not. His most recent book, The Everyday Crusade: Christian Nationalism in American Politics, co-authored with Irfan Nooruddin and Allyson Shortle, explores the ramifications of Americans believing that their nation is God’s chosen nation.
