Religion and Public Life has developed a series of case studies that illustrate how religious traditions deal in diverse ways with issues of climate change, gender, minority status in the United States, and violence and peace. These case studies can be used on their own or in conjunction with the Religion Profiles and/or Country Profiles. Each case study uses the method of Religion and Public Life and seeks to demonstrate that the religious tradition it discusses is internally diverse, changes over time, and is embedded in culture. Please see Our Approach for additional information on how we study religion and the Religious Literacy and Education Blog for examples of how teachers have used these resources in their classrooms.
The case studies in this section were created by Kristofer Rhude (MDiv ’18) for Religion and Public Life under the editorial direction of Dr. Diane L. Moore.
