Carly Daniel-Hughes earned her doctorate from Harvard University in Early Christian Studies. She teaches courses in the history of Christianity, biblical studies, and women, gender and sexuality in Religion. Her publications include The Salvation of the Flesh in Tertullian of Carthage: Dressing for the Resurrection (Palgrave Macmillan 2011) as well as the co-edited volume sDressing Judeans and Christians in Antiquity (with Kristi Upson-Saia and Alicia Batten, Ashgate 2014) and The Bloomsbury Reader in Religion, Sexuality, and Gender (with Donald Boisvert, Bloomsbury, 2016). Her research concerns how embodied social practices (dress, food and funerary practices) both informed and were shaped by early Christian worldviews on salvation, the self, and the body. Recent work examines gender and sexuality in Roman antiquity, with a focus on their relevance for contemporary life. Presently she is writing on the intersections between gender, death, and violence both in the Roman Empire and our own time. 


The winner of two university-wide teaching awards, Dr. Daniel-Hughes is also a passionate teacher and mentor. She is a member of the Department of Religions and Cultures Women, Gender, and Sexuality Seminar.
