American Religion @ RRCHNM

Welcome to our first ever newsletter. 

 You’re a part of the lucky few who, if you stick with us (and we hope you do), will have been here from the very beginning. We’re still working on growing this newsletter and its content, but some of the things you can expect from us include information about RRCHNM's projects about American religion, previews of work coming soon, bonus information, links to our latest blog posts in case you missed them, and more!

How the Census of Religious Bodies Changed Its Questions Over Time

In this blog post, Caroline Greer considers how those at the Census Bureau understood religion and religious organizations, how these considerations created the schedules, and what information was collected by the Bureau.

Coming Soon!
Our next visualization will be released next week! Be on the lookout for our map visualizing congregations in American Cities. This interactive map will enable users to see where different congregations flourished in 1926.

Words From a Student
Students help drive our projects. Here is what one student had to say about why they enjoy working with American Religious Ecologies:
This work is so valuable to me because as someone who is fascinated by history and mathematics (both are my minors accompanying my English major), I find that there is a gap between the two that should be closed in some way. This project has shown me that there is so much data out there that could help one better understand the past, and its preservation is essential to both present and future historians alike.”
