Corey Colyer is generally interested in the the sociology of knowledge and ideas (that is what people believe, or think they believe). He is specifically interested in the ways that social institutions influence, mediate, and modify belief. Corey's recent work in the Sociology of Religion focuses on institution building within Evangelical Protestantism. In “Constructing Christianity’s ‘Clear Voice’: The Creation of Christianity Today Magazine” (Colyer 2017) he drew on archival materials to show how elites within the evangelical movement used institutional command posts (such as Christianity Today Magazine) to establish and advance “evangelical” ideas. Other current projects concern the sociology of religious doubt and an analysis of Amish social institutions.
