Immigration and Religion in America

The SSRC project on Migration and Religion convened a working group of American migration and religion scholars to compare past and present patterns in the religious adaptations of Mexican and Italian, Japanese and Korean, Jewish and Muslim, African-American and Haitian migrants. These patterns included integration into American religions, conversion to American religions, the establishment of new religions in America, and the incorporation of American religions into migrants’ own religious practices. The working group produced the edited volume, Immigration and Religion in America (NYU Press, 2008).
