The Nones Teach-in

Placeholder


COURSE OVERVIEW
Join Dr. Ryan Burge, a leading expert in American religion, for an online course exploring the fascinating world of “The Nones” – the increasingly significant group of Americans who claim no religious affiliation. In this interactive session, Dr. Burge will take you on a journey through his newly updated book, “The Nones: Where They Came From, Who They Are, and Where They Are Going.” With his precise and accessible descriptions, backed up by a multitude of charts and graphs, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the nones and their impact on American society.

Discover how the nones have grown from just 5 percent in 1972 to a staggering 23.7 percent in 2018, making them as numerous as both evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics. Get an inside look into the different subgroups of nones, such as atheists and agnostics, and learn about the factors that lead an individual to return to religion.

During the three-hour session, Dr. Burge will guide you through his precise and accessible descriptions of the nones, illustrated with charts and graphs drawn from more than a dozen carefully curated datasets. You’ll gain a nuanced and meaningful picture of the nones and their impact on American religion.
