Doctoral Candidate in Anthropology & History
The English language has a category called "religion" which countless people work hard to understand and, more importantly, to live. I am dedicated to a rigorous intellectual and deep experiential engagement with this category as it manifests in everyday life, both within high institutions and in our most intimate moments. Specifically, I am interested in how people translate their experiences of sanctity into political worldviews and claims. My focus is currently on Catholicism in Poland, particularly the political theology of John Paul II. I also have a background in the study of Islam as well as American neopagan and neoshamanic movements. My anthropological and historical work is informed by phenomenological and psychoanalytic methods.
