Jonathan E. May is an Associate Professor of Sociology and the Interim Chair of the Division of Social Sciences at Campbellsville University. He holds a PhD in Sociology from North Carolina State University, an M.A. in Sociology from Western Kentucky University, and a B.A. in Theological and Historical Studies from Oral Roberts University. Dr. May teaches broadly across the sociology curriculum, including courses in community, demography, family, religion, and sociological theory. He is deeply interested in recent trends in American religion, particularly the relationship between religion and culture. Dr. May’s research includes exploring the impact of conservative Protestantism on female labor force participation, as well as the effect of the racial divisions in American Protestantism on popular Christian music. In addition to his research, Dr. May has begun to explore the use of Durkheimian theory to understand the increasing divisiveness of modern societies. He has recently developed a course in Appalachian religion in conjunction with the Appalachian Studies program at Eastern Kentucky University and is looking forward to further developing that course and partnership.
