Eleanor Craig

ELEANOR CRAIG holds a doctoral degree in Religion and Society from Harvard Divinity School, with a secondary field completed under Harvard's Committee on Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality. In addition to teaching the theories and methods class "Power, Knowledge, Identity," Eleanor directs EMR's program, advises secondary field students, and supervises the the activities of the working groups.

Dr. Craig is working on a book project entitled Fated Falls: Racial Religious Imaginaries in the Study of Trauma. Research for a second book focuses on 'alienation' as a concept that originates in Christian views of sin and travels into discourses about labor under capitalism (economics), the contrast between citizenship and foreigner (immigration politics), and divisions in subjectivity (philosophy and psychoanalysis).

Craig is co-editor with An Yountae of In the Image of Man: Race, Coloniality, and Philosophy of Religion (Duke University Press, forthcoming), and collaborates with Kris Trujillo on projects related to religion and literature, race and mysticism, queer theory, and psychoanalysis. 

Eleanor gives seminars on critical pedagogies and classroom power dynamics with the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning. Outside of Harvard, Eleanor is a core member of Boston's Asian American Resource Workshop and a political education trainer with the Sticky Rice Project.
