About the Author
Donovan O. Schaefer is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Religious Affects: Animality, Evolution, and Power, also published by Duke University Press, and The Evolution of Affect Theory: The Humanities, the Sciences, and the Study of Power.
"Inaugurate[s] a project of secular theorization that adds a distinctive and needed methodological angle to studies of the secular in North America. . . . A must-read for scholars of American religions. . . ."--Valeria Vergani "American Religion" (5/1/2023 12:00:00 AM)
"Wild Experiment is an indispensable addition to any course syllabus on race, religion, affect theory, and any interdisciplinary topic on the intersections between feeling and thinking."--Abdulrahman Bindamnan "Material Religion" (6/15/2023 12:00:00 AM)
"Through Schaefer's endeavor to expand the conversation between secularism studies and STS, the field of STS has an illuminating new vantage from which to look at knowledge, feeling, and belief. And it feels right."-- "Society for the Social Studies of Science Ludwik Fleck Prize Committee"
"This fascinating book is a valuable contribution to the field of affect studies and secularism studies, as it starts a first conversation between these previously somewhat unconnected fields."--Nur Yasemin Ural "Politics, Religion & Ideology" (8/3/2023 12:00:00 AM)
"Perhaps humanities scholars such as Schaefer can be useful in the climate crisis. They can help scientists pay attention to how knowledge feels--and thus how to be more effective in communicating it."--Amy Frykholm "Christian Century" (9/1/2023 12:00:00 AM)
