Meat America: The Work of Faith in the Heartland

One of the best places to see and experience what is really happening on the ground regarding migration, work, and religion today is in the Cornbelt. It is in this expansive geography, a vast and mostly rural swath of the larger Midwest, dotted with farms, Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOS), and meatpacking plants, that we are able to get a better understanding of how religious culture works in America. The quotidien realities of life in the Cornbelt involve intercultural, inter-linguistic and interreligious exchanges. And many native-born Iowans, I have found in the course of my ethnographic fieldwork, are willing to do the work of investing in a more open and diverse state and nation. Religion interacts dynamically with work and migrant status among both migrants themselves as well as the native-born Iowans who are their neighbors, fellow worshippers, and employers.
