  1. Matthew: Thanks for this great post. It’s exciting to hear of someone working at the intersection of public history and American religion.

    I’m glad you’ve raised the issue of religious communities, bias, and scholarly ethics. As a public historian who works primarily with Christian groups (in fact, mostly with a single denomination!), I’ve asked similar questions. How do I balance my responsibility to my audience with my responsibility to scholarship and to serious inquiry and analysis? (Plenty of loaded words in that single question!)

    I’m glad you’ve raised the question and connected it to larger concerns within the field. Looking forward to your next post.
