Course description

The Christian Right in American Politics and Literature

Presenter: Christopher Douglas, PhD, Department of English

Friday, Nov. 2: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

The empowerment of the Christian Right in the last 40 years has been one of the most important transformations of the U.S. religious landscape. This session looks at the historical origins of the Christian Right and the ways it has politically changed the nation, culminating in white evangelicals voting in favor of Donald Trump by 81% in 2016. It goes on to examine the ways American literature has responded to this social and political empowerment – often critically, occasionally incredulously, and sometimes with misunderstanding.

Christopher Douglas is Professor of English at the University of Victoria, where he teaches American literature and religion. He is the author of If God Meant to Interfere: American Literature and the Rise of the Christian Right, and has published research on the intersection of fake news and religion during the 2016-17 elections in the U.S. and Europe.
