I’m a sociology professor at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, where I’ve been since 2001. I race bikes. After that, I can’t do much. Most of my research is on the contours and consequences of religion in the United States, and I have particular emphases on Christian fundamentalism, African American, and immigrant religion. I race for Team Mack, a great bunch of people! http://www.siu.edu/~socio/Sherkat.htm
