Claire Rostov

Claire Rostov is a Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate Program in Religion. Her research primarily focuses on the intersection of religion, consumption, media, and waste in the context of the United States. Claire considers teaching to be her top priority. In the classroom, she encourages students to consider how religion operates outside of religious institutions and is often found in unexpected places. Towards this end, she draws from a host of interdisciplinary theories and methods, including anthropology, visual and material culture, and history. Claire holds an M.T.S. from Harvard Divinity School and a B.A. from Carleton College.
