I am currently a History and Religious Studies double major at Monmouth College
I am currently a Senior History and Religious Studies double major at Monmouth College in Illinois. This semester (Fall 2014) I will be studying and researching at the Newberry Library in Chicago Illinois.
My current research interests include pre-Civil War Religious History in the United States, more specifically the Second Great Awakening. In Spring of 2014 I conducted a research project into a early nineteenth century Presbyterian Minister in Cincinnati, named Joshua Lacy Wilson. I utilized the Reuben T. Durrett Collections at the Special Collections and Research Center at the University of Chicago.
In the field of Religious Studies I am very interested in American Religion, the Philosophy of Religion, and more specifically Pluralism. I am also very interested in Pluralism when it comes to interfaith cooperation.
