Jenn Lindsay is an anthropologist and PhD student in the Religion Department at Boston University. She holds a Master of Divinity ('11) in Interfaith Relations and Ecumenics from Union Theological Seminary in New York City, where she was co-chair of the Interfaith Caucus and and the Minister of Fun. At BU, Jenn pursues the question of how religion affects personal relationships, particularly interreligious relationships. Her research has been based in Italy and Indonesia--studying personal relationships between people of different religions, particularly between Muslims and Catholics--and in Peru, where she studied how local spiritualities and Catholicism shape people’s interactions with the environment. Jenn hails from San Diego, CA, raised by a religiously eclectic family whose members draw from progressive Jewish, Christian Scientist, Presbyterian, Unitarian Universalist, Hindu-based and secular humanist traditions. For a decade prior to attending Union Theological Seminary, Jenn worked in the film and music industries as a composer, film editor, performer and documentary filmmaker. Her nine albums are available on iTunes and at www.JennLindsay.com. Jenn also studied playwriting at Stanford University ('01) and arts management at the Yale University School of Drama ('05).
