About Me

As a first year M.A. student in the Religion in Culture program at the University of Alabama, I am currently gaining teaching experience while studying religion as a facet of human culture.

I received my B.A. in Religious Studies, Anthropology and Spanish in the Spring of 2017. The role of symbols, and their corresponding authority in the production historical narratives, seeded an early interest in the delineation of ‘truth’ by certain social actors and structured conditions. In my undergraduate studies, this interest manifested in broad reading and writing on discourse, identity formation, and social theory.

Looking with an ethnographic focus to Mexican immigrant communities in the Southeastern United States, I hope to combine my Spanish language skills and critical social theory to evaluate the function of religion in daily life.
