Kati Curts is a Ph.D. candidate in Religious Studies at Yale University. Her work focuses on the intersections of religion, affect, technology, and the secular. She is currently working on a dissertation, “Assembling Fords: A Harrowing History of Religion in the Automobile Age,” which interrogates religion in modern America through a cultural and religious history of Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company. She has also published and presented on a range of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century images, objects, events, and performances, including composite photography, world’s fairs, scrapbooking and other collecting practices, audio-visual mash-ups in contemporary art, and mediations of the Scopes “Monkey Trial” in popular culture and museum displays.
