Power, white male

  • Mary E. Hunt


When we think of religious studies in historical terms, the image of a white male bastion of power springs readily to mind. Some would argue that the picture has not changed much: that most religious groups are still headed by men, that predominantly white religious organizations have far more money and political clout than those run by women and/or people of color, that most tenured professors are still white men. True, perhaps, but to leave the story at this point is to ignore the enormous strides many women have made and the valuable solidarity engaged in by many white men who understand their common stake in the increasing diversity in our field.
