I’m Will Livingston, a doctoral student in the Department of Religion at Florida State University. The views expressed on this blog are my own and do not reflect the views of my department or FSU.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Stetson University in Religious Studies (with a minor in Gender Studies) and a Master of Theological Studies from Vanderbilt University Divinity School (with a concentration in Religion, Gender, and Sexuality).
My teaching competencies include Christian ethics, Islamic ethics, political ethics, and method/theory in the study of religion.
My research areas are religion and violence, human rights advancement, and the intersections of religion and pop culture.
I’m currently reading (for work): The Guilt of Nations by Elazar Barkan.
I’m currently reading (for fun): The Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer.
I have the joy of teaching “The Harry Potter class” at FSU. So if you’re a current or former student: Hi!
