Rachel C. Schneider

Rachel C. Schneider completed a doctorate in religion at Rice University in May 2017. Her dissertation, The Ethics of Whiteness: Race, Religion, and Social Transformation in South Africa, explores how progressive white Christians living in South Africa engage with past and present racial injustice. Working at the intersection of anthropology of religion and critical race studies, her research focuses on how religious commitments shape ethical and political practice and inspire social change. Rachel brings a background in qualitative research methods to RPLP projects on faith at work and religion and inequality. Her writings on race, gender, sexuality, African Christianity, and evangelicalism have been published in Religions, Syndicate Theology, Religious Studies Review, and The Immanent Frame.
