Maggie is a first year Master of Theological Studies student, focusing on Religions in the Americas. She is particularly interested in investigating intersecting (and often conflicting) indigenous, immigrant and nationalistic narratives of the United States as a sacred landscape. She earned her BA in Religion at Carleton College, where she conducted research on the religious landscape of the New Jersey suburbs, focusing on legal disputes between Hindu temples and municipal zoning boards. As an undergraduate she additionally worked as a research assistant for the Global Religions in Minnesota project, where she had the opportunity to visit and document local religious sites and rituals, as well as editing student projects and updating site content. She is excited to continue this public scholarship work with the Pluralism Project as a research associate, and through working on Pluralism Project’s social media and Religious Diversity News.
