Research Areas

Feminist Rhetorics, Religious rhetoric, Embodiment, Writing and Digital Pedagogy


I am interested in the relationships between gender, religion, embodiment and education. My most recent project looked at how young religious women negotiated their religious ideologies with their “dream” futures on Pinterest. I am also the project manager for the American Religious Sound Project, which is an inter-institutional project funded by the Henry Luce Foundation.
