Abstract

The 2022 meeting of the American Academy of Religion in Denver featured a book panel on Dana W. Logan’s Awkward Rituals: Sensations of Governance in Protestant America (University of Chicago Press, 2022). This essay introduces a forum based on the panel, featuring four scholars representing diverse subfields in religious studies: Ian MacCormack, Charles McCrary, Constance Furey, and Marko Geslani. It argues that Awkward Rituals, though embedded in ritual studies and the historiography of American religion, is a generative theoretical text for many areas of inquiry in the wider study of religion: the disjunctures and incoherences in religions; the practical applications of a mind/body dualism; the uses of the personal experiences of the scholar; and the endurance of comparison as a method.
