Bok Pedagogy Fellow
Jorden Sharick is a doctoral candidate in the Committee on the Study of Religion at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. His research focuses on the intersections of race, class, gender, theology, and religious practice. His dissertation project explores stories of racial reconciliation lived and told by white evangelicals in the contemporary US. Jorden holds associate degrees from Moreno Valley Community College; a bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies from the University of California, Riverside; and a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard Divinity School. He has research and teaching experience in expository writing methods; the anthropology of religion; the history of North American religions; narrative theology; the history, race and gender politics of the US civil rights movement; and the political history and contemporary politics of US evangelicals. And when he’s not thinking about these things, Jorden is probably spending time with his spouse, likely talking about Southern California, where they both grew up, and hoping that memories of the California sun will be able to give them enough vitamin D to last the next Boston winter.
