The Religions Texas archive serves as an active repository of knowledge and memory for Texas communities. It creates a space for communities to convey the nuances and complexities of their stories and contribute to a more capacious collective narrative.
The Religions Texas archive also serves as a resource for the larger Texas and national publics, especially journalists, policy makers, public service professionals, researchers, educators, students, and community leaders, to help them better understand the contours of their communities and the evolving pluralism of Texas.
This archive can be a valuable teaching tool for courses in Texas history, civics, religious studies, oral history, research methods, and more. We have put together sample classroom activities geared at a secondary or university level class.
