Investigating Political Tolerance at Conservative Protestant Colleges and Universities

Dr. George Yancey will look at data from multiple sources to find out whether conservative Protestant campuses are more or less likely to have political diversity and to enjoy political tolerance. He will show that they are indeed more tolerant politically although they are less tolerant on theological beliefs. These results come from a book Dr Yancey has written that is currently under contract.

 

Dr. George Yancey is a Professor of sociology at the University of North Texas. He has published several research articles on the topics of institutional racial diversity, racial identity, academic bias, religious seculars, and anti-Christian hostility. His books include Compromising Scholarship (Baylor University Press) a book that explores religious and political biases in academia, There is no God (Rowman and Littlefield) a book that investigates atheism in the United States, So Many Christians, So Few Lions (Rowman and Littlefield) a book that assesses Christianophobia in the United States, Hostile Environment (Intervarsity Press) a Christian book that explores how Christians should deal with Christianophobia, and Neither Jew nor Gentile (Oxford University Press), an investigation of the racial atmosphere on Protestant campuses.
