I have been teaching in the Religion department since 2001, focusing on the topics of Christianity, the New Testament, religious meaning, and race. Some of my course topics include Introduction to Biblical Studies, The Bible and Christian Faith, Clamoring for Change, and The Color of Change. I also teach several study abroad courses, including courses to South Africa, Ghana, and Hawaii.
My teaching and research interest include biblical studies, religion and social justice, the social construction of religious meaning, and race-religion-and-politics. I am currently researching the power, politics, and meaning behind the rhetoric of “change,” as well as the role of Christianity in bringing about social “change.”
I contribute regularly to the Luther College Ideas and Creation blog as well as to Sojourners online
