Daniel Schultz

Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Religion, Chair of the Religion Department

Professor Schultz received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 2017. Before coming to Whitman, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Oberlin College, where he taught for two years. He is a philosopher of religion working at the intersection of religious thought, modern philosophy, and gender studies. His published work explores themes that range from medieval art history to political theology to postcolonial historiography. His scholarship has appeared and is forthcoming in venues such as The Journal of Religion, Word & Image, Political Theology, History and Theory, and Brill’s The Medieval Franciscan series. He is currently writing a book that examines the ways religion is constituted as an object of knowledge in Michel Foucault’s later works.

His courses explore trajectories of modern religious thought in conversation with gender, race, and literature.
