I am Jeri Wieringa, PhD Candidate in history at George Mason University, studying digital history and nineteenth-century American religious history. I am interested in the interplay between religious systems, their surrounding cultures, and structures of power, with a particular eye to gender. My research is focused on Seventh-day Adventism and on the implications of digital technologies for the practice and production of history.
I have my MAR in the History of Christianity from Yale Divinity School, and my BA in English and Philosophy from Calvin College.
What does it mean to teach or research religious studies digitally? Does religious "data" make digital religious studies distinct within the digital humanities? What is a digital religious studies research project you think more people should know about? How can departments and the field better support digital methods and pedagogies? Six scholars gathered at the AAR's groundbreaking THATCamp to discuss these questions and more!
