An Unraveled America?

(p.191) Epilogue
Muncie, India(na)

Himanee Gupta-Carlson

University of Illinois Press

The epilogue summarizes the book’s central themes. It uses auto-ethnography to illustrate the challenges – and sometimes near impossibility – of creating a multi-racial, multi-religious polity in an America that has long been shaped by white, Christian dominance. It highlights ways in which such efforts to create such a polity have continued to take place among South Asian Americans and others in Muncie, Indiana. At the same time, it notes failures in the author’s own attempts in her personal life.

Keywords:   Muncie, Indiana, Indian Americans, South Asian Americans, racial discrimination, religious discrimination, Christianity, Middletown studies, racial and religious healing, interfaith alliances
