Historian of Religion
Outreach is what academics call engaging with the public, and it’s increasingly accepted that this is an important function for modern scholars – no more ivory tower isolation! I’ve given public lectures, helped stage family-friendly museum events, and talked about my research on the radio. Here’s a sample of some of this work.
