Former WGSS/LGBTS Chair Katie Lofton on Consuming Religion

November 16, 2017

For Kathryn Lofton, professor of religious studies, American studies, and history, many moments in her most recent book, “Consuming Religion,” were informed and inspired by her interactions with Yale College and graduate school students and by inviting her students to think about how their values emerged through their consumer choices, career decisions, and voluntary commitments. This book “is a meaningful testimony of what it is to be a professor at a non-profit institution built to change the world. There is not a chapter that was not affected by the positive fact of being at this institution, and it feels very personal to me in that sense,” Lofton says.
