Austin Steelman is a Ph.D. candidate in U.S. History and is interested in the intersection of political and religious conservatism in the 20th century. His in-progress dissertation, "Paper Gods: The Bible, the Constitution, and the Evangelical Revolt Against Modernity, 1923-1986," connects American evangelicals' commitments to biblical inerrancy and constitutional originalism in a longer intellectual history of the Religious Right. Austin is also an active part of the American Religions in a Global Context Program. Prior to coming to Stanford, Austin worked as a litigator in the field of intellectual property law.
