About Author

My primary field of preparation is the history of Christianity, particularly post-Enlightenment. My teaching interests are intrinsically cross-disciplinary. In religion they include religion and culture studies, contemporary American religion, theology, religion and ecology, and feminist studies in religion. In addition to teaching in the religion curriculum, I also teach courses on feminist theories and methodologies, ecofeminism, and global and transnational feminism. In my pedagogy, as in my research and writing, I therefore move freely among women's and gender studies, environmental studies and international affairs.
