061203_152902I am a Professor of Religious Studies at St. Thomas Aquinas College. My research and teaching focus on theoretical questions in the academic study of religion, typically related to discourse, ideology, and power. Some of my books include Masking Hegemony: A Genealogy of Liberalism, Religion, and the Private SphereCapitalizing Religion: Ideology and the Opiate of the Bourgeoisie; and A Critical Introduction to the Study of Religion. I currently edit a book series with Bloomsbury titled Critiquing Religion: Discourse, Culture, Power.

As a professor, my primary goals for teaching are, first, to demonstrate to students that societies are never set up in ways that serve everyone’s interests equally, and, second, to give them the skills to identify who benefits and who does not and how disproportionate social structures are legitimated and maintained.
