I am currently a visiting scholar at The Center for Religion and Media at New York University where I am a contributing editor to The Revealer, founded by journalist Jeff Sharlet in 2003. For The Revealer I write a monthly column, “The Patient Body,” which examines issues at the intersection of religion and medicine. My articles have appeared at the The Baffler, The New York Times, Bookforum, New York Law Review, Guernica magazine (where I’m a contributing nonfiction editor), The Baffler, and The Guardian. (A full list of articles can be found here.)
The Good Death: An Exploration of Dying in America, my first book, will be published by Beacon Press in February 2016.
