Last Thursday, June 5 2014, ASL was happy to welcome Prof. Michael Emerson, a leading scholar of religion and race from Rice University in Houston.

His talk explored the sociology of race and religion and its implications on political biases and communial life in Houston as well as in the US in general.

Over ten years of his field research and that of colleagues show clearly how race informs widely and deeply American religious and political practices. Mr. Emerson illustrated his findings in a compelling presentation.

This event was made possible by the cooperation of the Leipzig-Houston Sister City Association, the Institute for American Studies, the American Space Leipzig, and especially the efforts of Prof. em Hartmut Keil, currently Chairman of the Board for the Leipzig-Houston Sister City Association.
