Dana Logan

Dana Logan earned her Ph.D. in religious studies from Indiana University and comes to Washington University most recently from a teaching position at Mercyhurst University. Her research focuses on the intersections of North American religious, political, and economic practice. Drawing on a diverse set of archives, from nineteenth-century American Bible Societies’ annual reports to twenty-first century celebrity culture, her work addresses how religion has shaped American corporate activity and identity, as well as the often blurry line between bureaucratic, economic, and religious expression in the history of the United States.

Logan taught a spring 2017 course, “Performing Religion, Ritualizing Gender” and will teach a fall 2017 course, “Religious Celebrity.”
