Studying Religions at GSU

DSCN1635I teach courses in world religions and indigenous religions in the Department of Religious Studies at Georgia State University. I also serve as the Department’s Director of Graduate Studies. My research explores the nature of deity and deity embodiments in Aztec and modern Nahua (indigenous Mexican) religions.

The Fate of Earthly Things: Aztec Gods and God-Bodies is available from the University of Texas Press.

Sainthood and Race: Marked Flesh, Holy Flesh (coedited with Vincent Lloyd) is available from Routledge.

My recent writing about teaching appears online at Religious Studies News and the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning.
