Photo of Megan GoodwinMegan Goodwin, PhD, is Program Director for Sacred Writes, a Luce-funded project promoting public scholarship on religion hosted by Northeastern University.

Her formal expertise is in issues of gender, sexuality, race, politics, and American religions. Her first book, Abusing Religion: Literary Persecutions, Sex Scandals, and American Minority Religions is available through Rutgers. (We also talk about it on our religion & pop culture episode!)

She’s a professional explainer of why you should care about religion, even if you’re not religious yourself. (Often she will keep explaining even after you have asked her to stop.)
