On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Sophie Bjork-James [Twitter], an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Vanderbilt University and the author of The Divine Institution: White Evangelicalism’s Politics of the Family (Rutgers University Press, 2021), which ‘provides an account of how a theology of the family came to dominate a white evangelical tradition in the post-civil rights movement United States, providing a theological corollary to Religious Right politics’.
