Penny Edgell

Professor of Sociology, University of Minnesota

Edgell will explore the decline of religious commitment and the increase in nonreligion and spirituality since 1990. She will analyze data from the American Mosaic Project, Beyond Christian Nationalism survey, and Nonreligious Engagement and Well-being survey along with secondary sources to develop a new framework for understanding the transformed landscape of religion in the United States.
