"I am a third year graduate student studying religion and migration in the early modern British Empire. In particular, my research interests include the use of advertising and print culture to attract migrants to the new world, conceptions of the New World as a reflection or extension of the old world by both colonists and those still in Europe, and the use of religious thought to direct the creation of social boundaries and identities in the New World context."
