Prema Kurien, professor and chair of sociology, examines how immigrants are influenced by, and in turn shape, U.S. megachurches in her article, "The 'Browning' of American Megachurches," published in Religion & Politics. "Nondenominational evangelical megachurches have become a ubiquitous feature of the American religious landscape, and there has been a lot of discussion about how they are 'remaking' American religious traditions," says Kurien. "But American evangelicalism has also had a profound impact on the church lives of contemporary immigrants and their children." 01/23/18
