Lucia is a historian and ethnographer of religion who works at the intersection of critical ethnic studies, feminist and queer theory, and the history of labor and capitalism. Her dissertation constructs a cultural history of capitalist social responsibility projects—such as micro-finance, fair trade, and impact investing—in the twentieth century Americas. Lucia has written and published about the contemporary interfaith movement, the race politics of religious liberalism, and the rise of “conscious consumer” practice. She holds a B.A. in Religious Studies and Sociology/Anthropology from Agnes Scott College and a Master of Divinity from Harvard.
