Jill L. Hurley was born and raised in Texas but completed her undergraduate work at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM, with bachelor’s degrees in Religion and in Anthropology. Her undergraduate thesis was on race and racism at ENMU, a Hispanic serving institution. Jill is particularly interested in the processes of constructing and deconstructing culture, and more specifically where and how faith intersects those processes. She recently graduated with a master’s degree in Theological and Cultural Anthropology from Eastern University in St. Davids, PA. Her most recent fieldwork was completed in Nepal in 2017, where she focused on the Anthropology of Christianity, specifically looking at conversion from Hinduism to Christianity. Jill hopes to bring her love for the world and faith, both in their beautiful complexity and diversity, to students in the near future.
