Its mission is to promote research on race and ethnicity, bring together scholars across interdisciplinary units for dialogue and collaboration, and train the next generation of scholars here on the IUB campus.

    • As immigration from Asia and Latin America reshapes the demographic composition of the U.S., some analysts have anticipated the decline of conservative white evangelicals’ influence in politics. Yet, Donald Trump captured a larger share of the white evangelical vote in the 2016 election than any candidate in the previous four presidential elections. Why has the political clout of white evangelicals persisted at a time of increased racial and ethnic diversity? Immigrants, Evangelicals, and Politics in an Era of Demographic Change, a new book by political scientist Janelle Wong (University of Maryland), examines a new generation of Asian American and Latino evangelicals and offers an account of why increased demographic diversity has not contributed as much as might be expected to a political realignment.
