Teaching and Research Interests: Since my introduction to the study of religion as an undergraduate, I have been fascinated by the startling similarities and unexpected differences between and among world religions. When connected to my research interest in feminist thought, Holocaust studies, and interfaith dialogue, this fascination has led to sometimes disquieting, but always thought-provoking, insights.
