Dr. Stephen Selka is an associate professor in the department of religious studies at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN. 

As a cultural anthropologist, Selka's research focuses primarily on religion and race. 

His first book, "Religion and the Politics of Ethnic Identity in Bahia, Brazil" (University of Florida Press, 2007), discusses how people of African descent involved with various religious groups construct their identities as people of African descent.

His second book project, "Sisters in Spirit: Religion, Race and Tourism in Brazil," examines the intersection of religious practice, heritage preservation, and tourism promotion in Bahia.
