I am interested in women’s studies, sociology of religion, sociology of culture, trauma theory and collective memory. I am writing my dissertation on the collective representation of women in the early Christian church with an emphasis on how the institutionalization of the Church became a vehicle for the continuing social control of women and women’s identity.
