78.6 - Darren Dochuk on LA’s Protestant Migrations and Religious Transformation

In his lecture “Errands in the Wilderness: Protestant Migrations and the (Re-)Evangelization of California in the 20th and 21st Centuries,” Darren Dochuk, Andrew V. Tackes College Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame, talks about how the movement of protestant communities into, out of, and within Southern California made Los Angeles a center of innovative evangelization and religious transformation on an international scale. In response, Robert Chao Romero, associate professor of Chicana/o and Central American studies at UCLA, explores the history of Latino protestant communities in Los Angeles and the churches, institutions, and theologies that arose from them.
