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.
