Jon Miller, a guest contributor, was previously a senior research associate at CRCC and research professor of sociology. As a comparative sociologist interested in organizations and religion, Miller has focused on the history of the international evangelical missionary movement, using that movement as a lens for understanding the global relationships among religion, politics, and economics. Recently, he has been working with an international team of archivists to bring the photographic collections of missions into a searchable electronic database on the Internet that is hosted by the USC Digital Library. He directs the International Mission Photography Archive and the Pentecostal and Charismatic Research Archive, which is part of CRCC’s Pentecostal and Charismatic Research Initiative. Miller’s books include: Pathways in the Workplace: The Effects of Race and Gender on Access to Organizational Resources (1986); The Social Control of Religious Zeal: A Study of Organizational Contradictions (1994); and Missionary Zeal and Institutional Control: Organizational Contradictions in the Basel Mission on the Gold Coast, 1828-1917 (2003).
