My research and teaching focuses on ways that Christians remember and re-tell stories about their past, and how these memories and re-tellings shape their self-understanding in the present. I am the author of Philo of Alexandria and the Construction of Jewishness in Early Christian Writings (OUP, 2018).
After graduating with a BA (Hons.) from the University of King's College in Halifax, NS, I earned my MA and PhD in Religious Studies at McGill University, where I held a Vanier Canada Graduate Fellowship. From 2015-2017, I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Erfurt in Erfurt, Germany, before joining the University of Lethbridge in 2018.
My current research project, "Remembering Anabaptist Martyrs", investigates the reception and representation of early Christian martyrs among Anabaptists in the 16th century and in the present day. The project is funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant.
