ABOUT THE PROJECT
In 2015, a group of American studies students from Leipzig University, Germany, and Jagiellonian University Kraków, Poland went on a study tour to the US to learn about the role of religion in American society. After a preperatory seminar concerned with religion in the US, the group applied their knowledge in field research.
Travelling to the cities of Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, and Chicago, as well as an Amish community in southern Indiana, the group visited religious communities and institutions, scholars, NGOs, as well as important historical sights to find out just how central religion still is in people's everyday lives.
This five part series documents this trip.
