Research Highlighted

In case you're interested, a study that I conducted with Spelman Anthropologist Daryl White is featured in the Quick Takes section of The Atlantic magazine. We interviewed men who were asked (or, in many cases told) to shave their beards in order to serve in a church position. The study appeared in the December 2008 issue of Mental Health, Religion & Culture. Working with Daryl was a pleasure, and I am pleased to see that the study is receiving some publicity, even though the short summary in The Atlantic is more sweeping in its tone than I think the study warrants.
