I am a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Mount Allison University, ranked by MacClean’s magazine as the number one liberal arts college in Canada. I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University and my M.T.S. from Harvard Divinity School. My work has appeared in Journal of Religion, Religion & Literature, and Harvard Divinity Bulletin among other print and online publications. This year, I am teaching “Christianity: Thought, Practice, and Sanctuary”;”Islam and Mysticism: Divine Encounters”; “Faith and Doubt”; “Religion and Popular Culture”; and “Religion and Film.”
