My teaching interests include the interplay of religion(s) in social change, particularly issues of racism, sexism, sexuality and globalization; social movements in general, and non-violent and ecological movements in particular; the religious landscape of the U.S., with particular interest in the religious expressions of women, new immigrant groups and people of color; feminist and environmental sociology; and religion and ecology, with a particular interest in eco-justice and environmental racism. I also serve in the Environmental Studies and Women's Studies programs.
My research is focused on religious involvement, particularly Christian in ecological issues and movements in the U.S. and Australia, nature spirituality, and religious responses to global warming.
