Prof. Molly Farneth will be working remotely in Fall 2020. To schedule a phone or Zoom meeting, please reach out by email (mfarneth [at] haverford.edu).
Prof. Farneth is Associate Professor in the Religion Department. Her research and teaching focus on American and European religious thought (19th century to the present), with particular attention to religion and politics, ethics, rituals, and feminist and gender studies in religion. She is interested in the relationship between religious diversity and democracy, and the ways that members of diverse communities confront ethical conflicts and forge solidarity across religious and other differences. Prof. Farneth is the author of Hegel’s Social Ethics: Religion, Conflict, and Rituals of Reconciliation (Princeton University Press, 2017), and is now working on a book on the political significance of rituals.
