Welcome to Public Religion Research Institute’s snazzy new website! We’re excited to bring you our research and commentary in an even more user-friendly space, with lots of new tools and features. If you want up-to-the-minute coverage of religion and/or PRRI-related news, make sure you’re following @PRRIAmelia and @PRRIShannon on Twitter as well as our main Twitter account, @publicreligion.
Perhaps most excitingly (at least if you’re reading this) our blog is getting a makeover. You’ll still be able to find excerpts from PRRI CEO Dr. Robert P. Jones’ posts at “Figuring Faith,” his blog at the Washington Post On Faith, but we’ll be adding lots of new content. Starting today, you can make “At the Intersection” your go-to blog for everything connected to the intersection of faith and politics in the United States.
We will put together two separate link round-ups every day: a daybreak edition full of headlines, and even more articles in the early afternoon. Amelia, wielding her religious studies background, and Shannon, our resident political junkie, will both provide their two cents on why the afternoon stories make for good reading. We’ll also be reviewing books, interviewing religious leaders, writing about how PRRI’s research can expand discussion on popular news topics, and even more. If there’s something you’d like to see on the blog, tell us about it in the comments section.
Tracking down research on our website will also be easy: you can just type topics (like “Muslim-Americans” or “same-sex marriage”) into our new research search engine, and find every question PRRI has asked on the subject. Nifty, huh?
You can check out the Lunch Crunch on our homepage if you missed it on Facebook or Twitter, and you’ll be able to investigate career opportunities at PRRI right here. Our newsroom is the place to go if you want to know where PRRI research has been appearing in mainstream media outlets, or if you want to find a news release from one of our reports.
Needless to say, we’re thrilled to be bringing you our new and improved website. And we hope that you’ll search for research, comment on the blog, and stay up to date with PRRI in the news. After all, you’ll want to stay connected to PRRI’s coverage of the 2012 presidential campaign the election season ramps up this fall.
