'Intersections of Politics, Religion and Sexuality: Lessons from American Politics'

Speaker: Professor Angelia Wilson, University of Manchester

Abstract

For at least the last sixty years, religion and sexuality has provided a strong undercurrent in the American political agenda. This lecture focuses on the political strategies of the US Christian Right from the building of the most powerful political movement in contemporary history to the impressive machinery of constituent education. The research draws upon participant observation of CR political events, discourse analysis of constituent emails from leading organisations and elite interviews. The analysis demonstrates how employing an intersectional lens captures the nuance of the political identity of the Christian Right and their continued access to power.
