Carly Daniel-HughesAssociate Professor of Religion, Concordia University

Carly Daniel-Hughes received her doctorate from Harvard Divinity School in 2007 in the area of New Testament and Christian Origins, and is currently an Associate Professor of Religion at Concordia University (Montréal). She is the author of The Salvation of the Flesh in Tertullian of Carthage: Dressing for the Resurrection (Palgrave Macmillan 2011) and co-editor of Dressing Judeans and Christians in Antiquity (Ashgate 2014). Her research examines constructions of gender and sexuality in Roman antiquity, with an interest in their relevance for Christian sexual ethics today. In addition she has addressed how embodied social practices (including dress, food and funerary practices) informed early Christian theological worldviews. Presently she is writing on grief, mourning, and responses to violence in the Roman Empire.
