Anthony Petro received his Ph.D. in Religion from Princeton University in 2011, specializing in Religion in America and Women and Gender Studies. Before joining the Department of Religion at Boston University in 2012, he served as Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow in the Religious Studies Program at New York University. His research and teaching interests include the study of modern Christianity, especially evangelicalism and Catholicism in the United States; the history of religion, medicine, and public health; and critical and feminist theories of religion. His current project, After the Wrath of God: AIDS, Sexuality, and American Religion, investigates the history of American religious participation in the AIDS epidemic and its role in the promotion of a national moral discourse on sex. Professor Petro is co-chairing a five-year seminar for the American Academy of Religion on “Global Perspectives on Religion and HIV/AIDS.” In addition, he is developing a new project that traces the history of American religion and its impact on the professionalization of public health and medicine since the late nineteenth century.
