Carly Daniel-Hughes earned her doctorate from Harvard University in Christian Origins. She teaches courses in the history of Christianity, biblical studies, and women, gender and sexuality in Religion. Her research has examined embodied social practices (dress, food and funerary practices) in Roman antiquity and early Christian contexts, and how these shaped and revealed attitudes about the self, body, and afterlife. Current projects include a study of evangelical anti-sex trafficking campaigns today, with a focus on evangelical women's involvement in these ministries.


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.
