Postsecular America: A New Context for Higher Education
What is the current cultural context for American higher education? This essay defines the concepts of secularization, secularism, and the secular, and provides a brief history of their role in American higher education as well as more recent postsecular developments. The notion of postsecularity is described empirically (not ideologically) in terms of religion's new visibility in American culture and, by extension, on the nation's college and university campuses. Implications for contemporary higher education are briefly explored, especially as they relate to programs of general education.
