Sager received her Ph.D. from the University of Arizona and her book Faith, Politics, and Power: The Politics of Faith-Based Initiatives (Oxford) on state implementation of the faith-based initiative was published in January 2010.

Professor Sager’s research focuses on the intersection of religion, policy, and social movements. She has published several pieces on the Faith-Based Initiative in various research journals including the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, Sociology of Religion, and Non-Profit Voluntary Sector Quarterly.

At the Center she will be writing a new book based on this data examining how the progressive religious movement has shaped party politics and the impact this entanglement of religion and politics has on movement actors.
