Clay County AU Chapter Meeting – Saturday, October 10, 2015 

Time:     10 am

Place:     Fleming Island Public Library

Subject:  “Fundamentalist Religion Goes Mainstream”

Featured Speaker:  Julie Ingersoll, Professor of Religious Studies at UNF.
Dr. Ingersoll writes and teaches about religion in American culture with a focus on religion and politics and the religious right.

Originally from Maine,  Dr. Ingersoll earned a Ph.D. in religious studies from the University of California Santa Barbara, as well as a degrees in history from George Washington University and political science from Rutgers College.  She started studying religion as an undergraduate because she was interested in politics and they seemed so intertwined.   She has found this to be overwhelmingly true.

Her work has been cited in the New Yorker, the Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, American Prospect, Ms Magazine,, Beliefnet, and The Nation.  Her most recent book is Building God’s Kingdom: Inside the World of Christian Reconstruction (Oxford University Press, 2015).
