Assistant Professor, Cultural and Religious Studies, Queen's University, Ontario
My training is in anthropology, art history, cultural studies, and religious studies. I research and teach in the School of Religion at Queen's University. In addition to my journal articles on a variety of topics related to popular discourse on religion, new religious movements, and visual and material culture, my current book manuscript takes the heuristic idea of “boredom as a spiritual crisis” in order to explore problems of meaning in an age of overstimulation. I am also an assistant editor for the Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network blog and have written for the Religious Studies Project.
