Jacques Berlinerblau is associate professor and Director of the Program for Jewish Civilization at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. He has doctorates in Ancient Near Eastern languages and literature (from NYU) and theoretical sociology (from the New School for Social Research). He writes the blog The God Vote,, an exploration of the role of faith in the 2008 U.S. presidential race, for Newsweek's On Faith website. A nonbeliever himself, he also has written articles critical of the "New Atheism" movement. Berlinerblau hosts the show "Faith Complex" which is described as "a dialogue about the intersection of religion, politics and art." In 2010 he launched a second show with The Washington Post's Sally Quinn entitled "The God Vote" which focuses on news cycle issues involving faith and politics. In addition to this work in visual media, Berlinerblau blogs for The Chronicle of Higher Education's "Brainstorm" page where he writes about secularism, literature, and various subjects in higher education.
