Field of Study: Ethics
Michael Remedios Grigoni is an assistant professor in the Department for the Study of Religions at Wake Forest University, where he teaches courses in religion, politics, and the history of Christianity. With research interests spanning religious ethics, political theology, and ethnographic theology, he uses ethnographic methods to raise questions about religion, politics, and everyday life in the US American context. To this end, his current book project, tentatively titled The Gun in US American Christian Life: An Ethnographic Ethics, is based on fieldwork he carried out with Christian handgun owners and Christian anti-gun violence activists in North Carolina. His research has been supported by the Louisville Institute, the Hispanic Theological Initiative, and the Center for the Science of Moral Understanding at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He holds an M.T.S. from Harvard Divinity School and a Ph.D. in Religion from Duke University.
