The American Religious Sounds Project (ARSP) Gallery features curated digital exhibits about religious sound produced between 2014 and 2022. Some of these exhibits were created by award grantees and other scholarly contributors, based on their academic research. Others were developed by ARSP staff members, organized around materials from the ARSP’s extensive archive of audio recordings. Collectively, they explore religion as an audibly complex social, political, environmental, and embodied phenomenon and ask us to consider how our understanding of religion in America changes when we begin by listening.
