I have a new article out in the latest issue of International Studies Review. Entitled “Reassembling the Social in the Study of Religion and International Relations,” I call on researchers in this area to draw on tools from the relational turn in international relations. You can find the article here.
I spoke at Norwich University’s Peace and War Summit on March 20, 2023, providing commentary on two papers dealing with Middle East conflict.

I am excited to announce that I have been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure.
As part of the attempt to minimize the spread and impact of Covid-19, the University of Vermont has switched all classes to remote learning. For my two classes this semester, I am recording short videos as an overview of each lecture, and uploading the powerpoint slides with extensive notes. I am also using the Blackboard discussion boards to have conversation about the lectures during the regularly-scheduled class time. If anyone has questions on this, feel free to email me.
I have a review of Nilay Saiya’s Weapon of Liberty forthcoming in Nationalities Papers, and it is available through First View here. I think this is a great book, but worry about how to convince people who are skeptical of religion’s importance to read it.
I have a new article in the Washington Post’s “Monkeycage” feature, arguing that, instead of Saudi Arabia&the UAE pulling America into war with Iran, they may actually be restraining us. You can read it here.
