Research interests

  • Comparative scriptures and scriptural systems
  • Emergence of distinctly North American forms of Islam and the modes of exegesis associated with them
  • Ideologies of identity in the Hebrew bible

My research interests include comparative scriptures and scriptural systems, more specifically the processes of canonization in both traditional and alternate religious expressions, and the scriptural and interpretive traditions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity in comparison. Also, I am interested in the emergence of distinctly North American forms of Islam and the modes of exegesis associated with them, particularly around issues of the role of women, activism and fundamentalism. Finally, I continue my interest in ideologies of identity in the Hebrew bible, and in effective pedagogies in Religious Studies generally, and biblical studies in particular.
