Religion and Culture in the Public Sphere

Faculty
martha roberts

Assistant Professor of Religion Martha Roberts serves on the board of the Institute for Diversity and Civic Life in Austin Texas. 

The Institute is a nonpartisan educational organization that examines religion and culture in the public sphere and considers the challenges and possibilities of diversity in Texas, the larger region, and the U.S. as a whole. IDCL’s programs promote intellectual exchange, make current scholarship publicly intelligible, cultivate conversations about belonging, inclusion, and recognition, and facilitate collaboration across communities.

Roberts' primary research is a critical analysis of post-racial and post-ethnic theories of American religious pluralism. She is also working on a co-authored manuscript with Jenna Gray-Hildenbrand, which analyzes the various spiritualities emerging within the hula hooping subculture. In addition to her work with the IDCL, she sits on the Executive Committee for the North American Association for the Study of Religion.
