About Me
I hold a PhD from the University of Chicago (religious thought and ethics. I currently work for the non-profit Parliament of the World's Religions as Principal Investigator and Project Director of the Global Ethic Project. Fortunately my work is such that I am able to travel and work at the same time. I am also completing my research for an academic book on constructive theology and another on comparative theology. As much as I can, I write about religion in public life for general-audience publications. Look for my bylines in The Atlantic, The Conversation, Religion & Politics, The Globe Post, Religion Dispatches, and Sightings. @MyriamRenaud
