Professor Daniel-Hughes’ research has contributed to the study of the body, gender, and sexuality in Roman antiquity, the reception of Paul's letters, and the historiography of early Christianity. Her current project, provisionally entitled "Anticipating Asceticism," reconsiders how historians have understood the rise of asceticism. It pays particular attention to Clement of Alexandria and Tertullian of Carthage, whose emphasis on the cultivation of virtue, austerity, and emotional discipline are shown to reflect new configurations of civic and provincial life in the later Roman empire, ones that "anticipate" the flourishing of asceticism into the fourth century and beyond. She is author of The Salvation of the Flesh in Tertullian of CarthageDressing for the Resurrection (Palgrave 2011) and co-edited volume, Dressing Judeans and Christians (Ashgate, 2014 with Kristi Upson-Saia and Alicia Batten). Professor Daniel-Hughes’ work has also appeared in Biblical InterpretationJournal of Early Christian Studies, and Studies in Religion. She is an active member of the Society of Biblical Literature, serving most recently as a co-chair of the "Inventing Christianities" group. 


A devoted teacher and mentor, Dr. Daniel-Hughes has supervised numerous PhD and MA students. She is also the winner of two university-wide teaching awards.


She holds a ThD in Christian Origins and M.Div from Harvard University as well as MA in Religious Studies and BA in International Affairs from Florida State University.
