Dr. Beck Henriksen, visiting assistant professor of religious studies, has been selected as a participant of the 2024 American Examples program funded by the Henry Luce Foundation. The program is designed for scholars who are early in their careers and who study religion from a variety of disciplines to work collaboratively.

Participants will attend workshops focused on research, digital public scholarship, and teaching at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and led by mentors drawn from the faculty of the Department of Religious Studies.

Henriksen’s research focuses on the anthropology of religion and gender and sexuality studies.
