James Dennis LoRusso is Associate Research Scholar for the Faith &Work Initiative in the Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University. LoRusso is interested in Theories and Methods in the study of religion, the intersection of religion and business management thought and praxis, and the workplace as a site of production for the category of religion. He is the author of Spirituality, Corporate Culture, and American Business: The Neoliberal Ethic and The Spirit of Global Capital (Bloomsbury, 2017), which traces how “spiritual” discourses in business ihave contributed to the establishment and perpetuation of neoliberal capitalism. In his current role, he is co-researcher for a mixed-methods study of corporate chaplaincy in US companies and an ethnographic study of “spiritual labor” in secular and faith-based organizations.


James Dennis LoRusso argues that the nostalgic views about “work” in Jerry Maguire are nothing new, but rather part of a much longer tradition of reimagining the meaning of “work” in American popular culture, evident particularly in Arthur Miller’s play, Death of a Salesman.
