Research Interests: Modern religious thought, especially the intellectual history of Christianity; Continental philosophy of religion; feminist thought; environmental thought; secularism & the postsecular, histories of death and the afterlife.
My research is concerned with the intellectual history of Christianity, and the secular afterlives of theological concepts. I am interested in both the erasures and the endurances of the theological within secular frames of thought. And I am especially interested in how these traces of the theological have influenced the way we think about the natural world, other creatures, our mortal bodies (and their eventual destinies). My current book project, Creature Feeling: Power and Affect in Creaturely Life examines the figure of the creature in theological, and extra-theological, texts.
