"Racial Limitations on the Gender, Risk, Religion & Politics Model”
|Waar:||Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, Oude Boteringestraat 38 (Room TBA)|
Using data collected during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Dr. Friesen explores the intersectional nature of risk tolerance and its relation to participating in religion and politics. Risk and uncertainty generally lead women over men to pursue religion and avoid politics, but this is mainly based on the experiences of white Americans, who use religion and approach politics differently than their Black American counterparts.
Dr. Amanda Friesen is an Associate Professor of Political Science and a Project Director for the Center for the Study of Religion & American Culture at IUPUI. She will be a Visiting Scholar at the Amsterdam Research Center for Gender and Sexuality in 2019-20.
