Biography

Joshua Guthman is a cultural historian with a particular interest in religion, emotional experience, and music. His book, Strangers Below: Primitive Baptists and American Culture, demonstrates the unlikely but enduring influence of a little-known group of antimissionary and antirevivalistic Baptists on American cultural and religious life. He was selected as a participant in the 2014–2016 Young Scholars in American Religion Program organized by the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture. At Berea, he teaches the introductory U.S. history survey and seminars in American religious history, the trans-national history of emotions, the American Civil War, and microhistory.
