Philip S. Gorski Ph.D.

Frederick and Laura Goff Professor of Sociology and Religious Studies

Expertise: 

Christian nationalism, the Christian right, populism, secularization, the Protestant Reformation

Description: 

I write about religion and politics in the US and Western Europe in a historical and comparative perspective. My recent work focuses on white Christian nationalism and how it threatens American democracy. More broadly, I am interested in the relationship between religion, race and democracy as well as the emergence of a global, anti-democratic religious right.
