Biography


My research focuses on the intersection of religious formation, violent rhetoric, and gender, particularly how religious discourses co-opted, constructed, and normalized violent masculinities. My dissertation is tentatively titled “Making Monastic Men: Reforming the Novitiate in the Long Twelfth Century.” This project is being supported by the University of Texas’ Department of History, the American Historical Association’s Bernadotte E. Schmitt Grant, and the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library’s Heckman Stipend.
