Date of Defense
This study aims to understand the social configuration of religious identities of South American millennial migrants who self-identify as Christian in Miami-Dade County. The work entails an extensive description of the context of the study subjects, deep theoretical insight on religion and identity, and a qualitative approach. The narratives of the South American millennial migrants’ process of religious identity configuration and the relationships they establish with religious institutions emerged from in-depth interviews and focus group sessions. The analysis of such narratives grounded middle-range theory that makes sense of the study subjects and can potentially shed light on other experiences in pluralistic, migratory contexts. In the end, the study offers a significant contribution to the under-explored intersection between the processes of identity configuration, religious institutions, and migration in Miami-Dade County from the perspective of South American millennial migrants who self-identify as Christians.
