My scholarly interests lie in the fields of constructive theology and liturgical studies (I hold doctorates in both). Primary conversation partners in other fields are in gender studies, cultural studies, and -- most recently -- digital media theories. Originally from Europe, I have been living and working in North America for many years now, first at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, and since 2007, at Yale.

Biography

My scholarly interests lie in the fields of constructive theology and liturgical studies.  Primary conversation partners in other fields are in gender studies, cultural studies, and -- most recently -- digital media theories.  In the past, I have written extensively on liturgy and women's lives, see for example Dissident Daughters: Feminist Liturgies in Global Context (2001); Fragments of Real Presence: Liturgical Traditions in the Hands of Women (2005); Gender Differences and the Making of Liturgical History (2011). I also co-produced a video documentary, Worship in Women’s Hands (2007).  Other scholarly interests of mine are the hymns of Charles Wesley and the liturgical thought of the nineteenth-century Anglo-Catholic revival.  I also write regularly for the liturgy blog Pray Tell.
