    I am a historian of American religion and politics. My dissertation, "God, War, and Politics: The American Military Chaplaincy and the Making of Modern American Religion," demonstrates that the modern American state wielded power over and through religion, transforming the spiritual landscape of American society as well as using faith to support military and foreign policy goals.
