This coming week we are welcoming Miles Mullin of the J. Dalton Havard School for Theological Studies (Southwestern Baptist Seminary) as the latest addition to the Anxious Bench’s blogging roster!
From Miles’s faculty profile at SWBTS:
Miles S. Mullin, II is Assistant Professor of Church History at the J. Dalton Havard School for Theological Studies, Southwestern Seminary’s campus in Houston, Texas. He grew up in the Rio Grande Valley where he played tennis, soccer, and excelled in school. He was educated at the University of Virginia (B.A.), Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and Vanderbilt University (M.A., Ph.D.). Dr. Mullin maintains broad historical and theological interests, but his main area of expertise is American religious history, specifically the interplay between religion and culture.
Along those lines, his primary research focuses on evangelical history, while maintaining a strong secondary interest in African American religious history, especially the Civil Rights era. His most recent essay, “Neoevangelicalism and the Problem of Race in America,” is included in Christians and the Color Line, forthcoming from OUP. Currently, he is revising his 2009 dissertation on the development of northern evangelical social concern after World War II for publication and has begun work on a short history of religion in America.
You can follow Miles on Twitter @msmullin. We’re looking forward to his posts.
The Anxious Bench, as always, features blogging from broadly evangelical professional historians on topics of wide current and historical interest. We will be announcing the addition of another blogger soon – watch for that next weekend!
