Videos of Past Presidential and Furfey Lectures
Each year, the outgoing ASR President delivers a Presidential address at the ASR Annual Meeting. Each year, that president invites a distinguished scholar to present a Furfey Lecture — a lecture series that began in 1981 and is described HERE.
We are fortunate to have videos of the some of the most recent lectures posted on the ASR YouTube Channel. So far, we have posted:
The 2023 Presidential Address by Gerardo Martí: “Racial Justice and Racialized Religion: Are Progressive White Christians Getting It Right?”
The 2023 Furfey Lecture by Penny Edgell: “After Restructuring: Understanding the American Religious Landscape of the Twenty-First Century”
The 2022 Presidential Address by James Spickard: “Sensitizing Blinders: Theorizing about Theory in a Post-Colonial Era”
The 2121 Presidential Address by James Cavendish: “Religion as a Resource in an Increasingly Polarized Society”
The 2121 Furfey Lecture by Kelsy Burke: “Piety, Perversion, and Politics: The False Dichotomy of Sex and Religion in America”
