Religion and the Practice of American Parenting

source: Yale University    2015年1月12日
We live in an age where there seems to be no higher moral imperatives than those associated with parenting. At the same time that there has been a decline in religious orthodoxy, the expectations of what it means to be a parent have become more orthodox. Not that more parents are religious, but that more people treat parenting religiously. This talk explores how this came to be, arguing that parenting is usefully understood through the interdisciplinary matrix of religious studies.

Kathryn Lofton, Sarai Ribicoff Associate Professor of Religious Studies and American Studies, spoke on February 19, 2013.
