2020-2021 Research Associate
Kate is a second-year Master of Theological Studies student at Harvard Divinity School focusing on Gender and Sexuality. She is interested in the intersections of reproductive healthcare and religion, especially in social movements that challenge the assumed contrast between religion and abortion. While getting her B.A. in Religion at Carleton College, she walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain and interviewed spiritual but not religious pilgrims about their experiences walking a Catholic pilgrimage. She remains curious about the ways that religious nones, atheists, and agnostics engage in and transform religious ritual. Having served as an abortion doula in Minnesota, Kate seeks to collapse the boundary between advocacy and academia. She is excited to contribute to the wealth of public scholarship that the Pluralism Project has to offer.
