My research focuses primarily on how contentious social issues, commonly thought of as "culture war" issues, in the United States become increasingly salient among religious groups, how framing and understandings of the issues change over time, and how stances on such issues provide a platform for religious groups to negotiate boundaries between themselves and others, both religious and more broadly in terms of race, class and gender.
