Research/Creative Interests

I am currently directing a large qualitative research project interviewing religiously-identified women (Christian, Jewish, and Muslim) who had abortions to document how they understand their abortion and their reproductive story in light of their faith. I also have an ongoing research agenda related to economic ethics, critiques of capitalism/neoliberalism, and the ethics of a solidarity economics and other community-centered forms of economic activity.

Research/Creative Needs

Research support for the Religious Women and Abortion project includes reviewing interview transcripts, administrative support for the project (scheduling interviews, etc.), and assistance/support in coding).

Mentoring Style

  • One-on-one or in small groups, depending on the project
  • I typically work with multiple students
  • I work on individual projects with overlapping interests

Currently looking for a student to apply and work in these programs

  • Elon College Fellows
  • Lumen Prize Application
  • Honors Fellows

I can mentor a student enrolled in 4998/4999 hours during these semesters

  • On sabbatical 2022-2023, will be able to mentor students again starting in Fall 2023

Student Qualifications

  • Students will work with feminist theory; intersectionality (race, gender, class intersections); qualitative research.
  • My work in social justice and ethics focuses on historically marginalized communities and I enjoy mentoring students who share that concern and/or who come from those communities.
