Editors Sarah Imhoff and M. Cooper Harriss aim to broaden the range of what is studied and what is considered part of “American religion.”

The journal is funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation as part of the “Being Human” project — a program that will explore what it means to be human through a variety of perspectives and will be overseen by the Center for Religion and the Human.
