Expanding Racial Analysis in Asian Pacific American Religious Studies
Antony Alumkal, Iliff School of Theology, Denver, CO: email@example.com
Several scholars of Asian Pacific American religion have called for greater attention to race as a category of analysis. However, there has been little methodological discussion of how interested scholars can proceed along these lines. Drawing upon Omi and Winant's racial formation theory and Ammerman et al.'s Studying Congregations: A New Handbook, this paper discusses methodological strategies for analyzing racial projects in Asian Pacific American religious communities. The paper also suggests several promising areas for future research.
