Andie Alexander is a doctoral student in American Religious Cultures at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, USA. She is interested in identity construction, boundary formation, and rhetorics of experience. Her work examines the implicit religious rhetoric in pro-immigration discourses as ultimately working to Americanize immigrants in the US. Andie also works as a contributor and the Online Curator at Culture on the Edge. Her website can be accessed here.
Aaron Hughes, the keynote speaker for the #JZSatNTNU Conference in Trondheim, Norway, talks with the RSP about the legacy of Jonathan Z. Smith's work for the field of religious studies.
In this October 2020 episode of Discourse!, Andie Alexander, Hina Muneeruddin, and Leslie Dorrough Smith explore ideas of infantile citizens, political debates as spectacle, rhetoric as bumper bowling, fist-fighting viruses, and fake news in the discourses surrounding the US Presidential election.
