Description

Taking the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom’s 2016 seizure of Oregon’s Malheur Wildlife Refuge as a case study, this essay argues against methodological approaches that reduce complex human circumstances to align with master narratives as well as those which reify religion as a distinct—and too often privileged—field of human thought and action.
