In this podcast, Art Remillard speaks with Emily Clark about her article in volume 14 of the Journal of Southern Religion. Clark is a doctoral candidate at Florida State University and managing editor of the JSR. In this conversation, she brings us back to 1973, when a group of professors in the Religion Department at FSU established the Center for the Study of Southern Religion and Culture. For the next eight years, the Center held lectures and symposia and published The Bulletin of the Center of the Study of Southern Religion and Culture. Clark explains how reading through this “time capsule of southern religion” helped her to better understand the historiography, while also offering context for her dissertation, “The Creole Color Line: Religion and Race in Nineteenth Century New Orleans.” This is the second of three podcasts recorded at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion in Chicago.
