Todd Green Profile

I joined the faculty of Luther College in the fall of 2008. Prior to Luther, I served as a visiting instructor at Vanderbilt Divinity School.

I teach courses in European and American religious history. My research interests include Islamophobia, interreligious dialogue, and secularization. I have published peer-reviewed articles on these topics as well as a book titled Responding to Secularization: The Deaconess Movement in Nineteenth-Century Sweden (Brill, 2011). I am currently working on a book for Fortress Press that surveys the historical and contemporary manifestations of Islamophobia in Europe and North America.

I contribute regularly to the Religion section of The Huffington Post and co-chair the Religion in Europe Group of the American Academy of Religion.
