Righting America at the Creation Museum
Welcome to the online home of Righting America at the Creation Museum. This site aims to extend scholarly conversations about topics related to creationism, fundamentalism, and the Christian Right in contemporary American culture. We have been studying the Creation Museum since 2008, asking questions about the museum and the larger enterprise of Answers in Genesis (including the Ark Encounter) as it pertains to Americans’ understandings of science, the Bible, and politics.
Our Reviews page provides links to online resources in which Righting America has received critical reception.
Our News & Events page highlights recent updates and features related to our academic and public presentations of our research behind the book.
Most important, the RACM Blog provides readers a forum for sustaining dialogue on our work.
We hope you will use the materials and media provided on our site to develop richer understandings of the arguments we make in Righting America at the Creation Museum.
