Personal Biography Statement
I specialize in the history of American religion and early American history. I am particularly interested in how early Americans experienced religion, not so much through institutions and formal worship, but in the course of their everyday lives. My current book project explores the religious geography (that is, the changing spatial and spiritual layout of churchgoers, clergy, and churches) in Northern New England, and how a shifting religious landscape gave way to new kinds of spiritual communities and identities.
