Research Interests

  • History of European immigration to the United States in the nineteenth century, with particular attention to the interactions between churches and migrants over questions of identity. 
  • Working now on current issues of religion and identity among West African migrants who attend Methodist churches in London - conflicts around religious, cultural, and transnational identity.
  • Work engages literature and methodology from the social sciences, and the broader range of material on migration.
