Interreligious Perspectives on Contemporary US Politics: (Inter)Religion in Social Movements, Political Organizing, and the Ballot Box

Religion has historically played a central role in American electoral politics, policy making, movements for social change, and democracy in general; this role remains to this day. Religious institutions, communities, ideas, values, norms, and critique continue to shape individual Americans, party platforms, and the larger political discourse. The impact of religion on contemporary politics, in particular the 2016 and 2020 election cycle, is evidence that religious discourse shapes—andincreasingly is shaped by—political discourse in the United States.

The deadline of 8 January 2021 is intended to allow contributors the option to reflect on their research both before and/or after the November 2020 General Election.
