Therese Larsson Hultin, a Swedish journalist, traveling across the United States on a 90-day fact-finding fellowship, is studying the role of religion in American life and American politics.

Hultin was at Ohio University as a guest of the Institute for International Journalism and the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. During her visit, she talked with WOUB’s Tom Hodson.

“To understand the American political system, one needs to understand the role of religion in American life,” Hultin said.
