Jordan Conley

Jordan ConleyJordan Conley is a Ph.D student at the Graduate Division of Religious Studies working in the Texts and Traditions track, specializing in Ancient Christianity (Origins to Late Empire). In 2009, she graduated with a BA in Religion and Classics from the University of Puget Sound, and in 2014, she earned an MTS from Harvard Divinity School with a focus on New Testament and Early Christianity. Her current research interests include ancient and late antique discourses of affliction, practices of incubation, pilgrimage to healing sites, and the social function of monasteries, with attention to the themes of agency, instrumentality, and performance. Moreover, she studies healing practices and narratives as informed by physical structures and material culture and hence is interested in the intersection between texts and archaeology.
