Personal profile

Biography

Research Interests:

I am primarily interested in the intersections between gender, sexuality and religion, especially in queer theory and queer studies. I have published two monographs in this area: Undoing Theology (2018, SCM Press) and Queer Theologies: The Basics (2019, Routledge). I have published book chapters and journal articles on religion, gender and sexualities and queer research in the study of religion. My research interests span the following areas: queer theologies/queer biblical studies; sociology of religion; ethnography/autoethnography; religious identities; sexualities; feminist, gender and queer theories; interdisciplinary approaches and non-traditional methods; ethics.

Biography:

I am currently Senior Lecturer in Theology and Religion at Edge Hill University. I gained my PhD in Theology and Religion from the University of Birmingham in 2016 and my Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education from Edge Hill University in 2019. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am an external member of Sheffield Institute of Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies and on the editorial board of the Journal of Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies.
