02 Feb New Progressive Religious Movement
Wade Clark Roof (Religious Studies, UCSB)
Tuesday, February 2 / 2:00 PM
IHC Seminar Room, HSSB 6056
Professor Roof is a leading sociologist of American religion. He will be speaking about his current project on the “new progressive religious movement,” particularly in southern California. Using a multi-dimensional methodology such as interviews, content analysis, survey, and online questionnaire, the project’s goal is to assess what is meant by “progressive”; the factors driving the current Social Gospel-like movement; priorities for social change; and potential alliances among religious constituencies.
