Chapter Summary

This chapter organizes four major historical moments for intellectually capturing the origins and progression of Latin religions in the United States. Period one covers the early twentieth century in the borderlands and is described as Borderland Church studies. Period two encompasses the mid-twentieth century from 1968 to 1990 and is identified as the Sociology of Latin Religions, when the bulk of early scholarship in Latin religions was envisioned and written. The third period is marked by the recognition by scholars of the importance of interdisciplinary scholarship in Latin religions betwen1991 and 1996 as it moved beyond past sociological frameworks by incorporating ethnic and religious studies perspectives into its analysis. The fourth and final period from 1997 to the present builds on the work of period three and incorporates a transnational and borderlands perspective with a new interpretation of Latin religious studies infused with cultural studies scholarship.

Keywords: borderlands; cultural studies; Latin religions; sociological frameworks; United States
