Communication Faculty Member Publishes Essay
Dr. Matthew T. Althouse recently published an article in Journal of Communication and Religion. Co-authored with Emeritus Professor Floyd D. Anderson, “The Southern Baptist Convention’s Resolution on the Alternative Right: Making Progress on the Upward / Downward Way” explores how America’s largest protestant denomination initially failed to condemn the Alt-Right at its 2017 meeting.

In this article, Althouse and Anderson suggest how redress for racism may be fostered by public disagreements and collective expressions of suffering.
