Emily D. Crews [+-]
University of Chicago Divinity School
Emily D. Crews is a PhD Candidate in History of Religions at the University of Chicago Divinity School. Her research considers projects of identity construction, maintenance, and negotiation in African and African diaspora religions, with a particular focus on gender and the body. In the classroom she thinks with students about major categories and ideas in the study of religion through everyday phenomena like friendship, fantasy novels, Greek life, and the Great Emu War of 1932.

Description

In the Afterword, Emily D. Crews draws on her experiences with Jonathan Z. Smith at the University of Chicago Divinity School to ask what Smith’s legacy might be for current and future scholars of religion. She offers three lessons that she learned from Smith’s work and that she hopes others may learn, as well.
