Prof. Tricia Bruce, Maryville College

Welcome back to the Daily Theology podcast! We’ve been on hiatus the last two months to work on some episodes and other projects, but we return with Steve Okey’s conversation with Tricia Bruce! They discuss how Prof. Bruce became interested in studying the sociology of religion, the place of parishes in US Catholic polarization, and the importance of diversity within the Church. They also talk about the motivational properties of the musical Hamilton and their shared desire for a bluegrass setting of the mass.

Dr. Tricia Bruce is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Maryville College in Maryville, TN. She earned her BA in Sociology and Communication from Southwestern University and her MA and PhD in Sociology from UC Santa Barbara. She is the author of Faithful Revolution: How Voice of the Faithful Is Changing the Church (Oxford University Press, 2011) and the forthcoming Parish & Place (Oxford University Press, 2017). She is also the co-editor (along with Mary Ellen Konieczny and Charles C. Camosy) of Polarization in the US Catholic Church: Naming the Wounds, Beginning to Heal (Liturgical Press, 2016), which you hear us discuss in the podcast. You can find also find her on Twitter.
