Background

Daniel R. Roeber (Ph.D., Florida State) researches the relationship between religion and politics in the early republic period of U.S. history, with a specific focus on the development of governmental institutions that intersect with religion broadly construed. He teaches courses on religion in the United States, world religions, American and global evangelicalism, and the Christian tradition.

Roeber defended his dissertation, Establishing Disestablishment: Federal Support for Religion in the Early Republic in April 2018. He is currently revising the work with the aim of having it published by 2020.
