cover-bassimirAfter Crisis: Watergate and Positions on Politics in Contemporary Evangelical Magazines

During the early 1970s, evangelicals shared a vision of social concern but debated its practical consequences. For many, the social encompassed politics and the Nixon/ McGovern presidential race mobilized evangelical political activists. The Watergate Affair shattered the hopes of Nixon supporters and seemed to prove true his opponents’ worst fears. Yet it also threatened to stymie evangelical approaches to politics. Evangelical magazines of the time provide a window on the positioning of evangelicals on politics and the reinvention of a Christian approach to politics after crisis.

Anja-Maria Bassimir is a historian and religious studies scholar specializing in the religious history of the United States. She is a member of the DFG research group “Un/Doing Differences: Practices of Human Differentiation” working on a project entitled “Pluralism, Boundary-Making, and Community-Building in North-American Religious Periodicals” at the University of Mainz (since 2013). Before that, she was part of the faculty of North American History at the University of Münster. Bassimir wrote her dissertation on visions of spiritual community in evangelical magazines during the 1970s and 1980s.
