I’m an Assistant Professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. My research and teaching focuses on the contemporary religious situation. My major line of work is about boredom and spirituality. At the moment, I’m writing a book which investigates how the modern concept of boredom as a spiritual crisis functions today, in the late modern “information society.” Other research areas include new religious movements, ritual, religion and/as media, and concepts of nonreligion and secularity. The scholarship of teaching and learning in religious studies is also of great interest to me. I am an Assistant Editor for the Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network. I also serve as a Member-at-Large on the Canadian Society for the Study of Religion executive.
