Announcing the Confluences Project!

The Department of Religious Studies is launching a new public-facing research project celebrating Missouri’s religious diversity.

At the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, the South and Midwest, the Ozarks and the prairies, America’s religions flow together and are remade in Missouri. From the French Missions in St. Louis to the Trail of Tears, the Mormon Wars, and the Ferguson Uprising, Missouri has been central to the history of religion in America.

Our work is supported by the UM System https://religiousstudies.missouri.edu/news/confluences-project-awarded-t... and Missouri Humanities Council https://religiousstudies.missouri.edu/news/confluences-project-awarded-f...
