Lived Religion Since Vatican II, Notre Dame University, April 2014
Big Berks (Conference of Women Historians), Toronto, June 2014
I spend time each year travelling. Check out some of my favourite photographs of Christianity in other places.
I'm a professor of religion at Concordia University in Montreal, with a PhD in American Studies from Harvard.
My research examines the history and practice of North American Christianity. I'm interested in how the divine, the miraculous, and the unseen become real for people in particular times and places, especially through material objects.
Lately I've been thinking about the connections that we imagine and foster with people and places globally. These themes are central in my first book, on Christian Holy Land pilgrimage.
I'm a visiting research fellow at Princeton's Center for the Study of Religion in 2014 and in the Young Scholars in American Religion program, 2013-15.
