Curriculum Vitae


Current Research and Teaching

Jack Delehanty studies how moral frameworks, especially religion, provide cultural justifications for inequality in the U.S. and fuel movements to contest it. He has published research on religious conservatism’s changing effects on American national identity and belonging, the cultural dynamics of faith-based community organizing, and the ways progressive social movements draw on religious symbols and traditions to support racial and economic justice. At Clark he teaches courses on sociological theory, inequality, activism and social movements, and religion.
