Back to the Garden: Civil Disobedience and the Postwar Transformation of American Religion

This project is an oral history collection project, collecting interviews of former members of religious social action organizations that were active in the early 1960s, yet had disbanded by the early 1970s. The goal is to shed light on the intellectual and institutional transformations that eroded liberal religious involvement in civic life at a moment of otherwise historic strength. The resulting interviews will be made freely available to the public through a Williams College digital repository, as well as informing Bohlen's current book project.
