“What’s Behind the ‘None’-sense? – Changing Predictors of Religious (Non)Affiliation Over Time”

Dr. Kelley Strawn, associate professor of sociology, will present the results of his recent research examining whether predictors – or “causes” – of religious non-affiliation in the United States have changed over the last forty years.

While popular media and political “messagers” like to latch onto particular explanations for the rise of religions non-affiliation, evidence suggests that it is very difficult to characterize or predict who does or does not self-describe as “non-affiliated” and that those factors that do provide some degree of explanation have changed over time.
