Religion: A Documentary History Project
The Project occasionally works with scholars not otherwise associated with it to produce material relevant to the study of African-American religious history, but pertinent as well to American religion and cultural history and African-American studies more broadly conceived.
Currently available are the papers presented at Race, Religion, and Nationalism: Three Books, a symposium held at Amherst College, October 2627, 2001, on Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.s Exodus!: Religion, Race, and Nation in Early Nineteenth-Century Black America (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2000), David W. Blights Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 2001), and Dale E. Petersons Up from Bondage: The Literatures of Russian and African American Soul (Durham, N.C.: Duke University Press, 2000).
Included are commentaries by Will B. Gravely and Robert Gooding-Williams on Exodus!, W. Fitzhugh Brundage and Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham on Race and Reunion, and Nancy Ruttenburg and Valerie Smith on Up from Bondage, as well as responses by Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., and Dale E. Peterson.
