Stephanie House-Niamke, a doctoral student in the Eberly College Department of Sociology and Anthropology, will be the next speaker in the Faculty Justice Network’s Faculty Talks series from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday (April 14) via Zoom.
Her presentation is titled, “Where Did Your Christ Come From? Exploring the Significance and Prevalence of the White Jesus Phenomenon Among Black Baptist Women and Men.”
She will outline the results of interviews conducted with 19 Black Baptist Christians to understand the impact of the White Jesus Phenomenon. She will also compare these perspectives to Berger's Theory of Religion and World Construction.
The 2023 Faculty Talks series spotlights the research scholarship of FJN faculty and graduate students.
