Kevin Rose is a doctoral candidate in religious studies at the University of Virginia where he studies twentieth-century American religious history, focusing especially on how the shifting formations of American capitalism produce certain infrastructures for religious agency. His dissertation project examines religious environmentalism as an exemplar of this relationship between religion and capitalism, suggesting that, as Protestants came to see the midcentury world in a state of perpetual environmental crisis and turned to practices of consumption as the remedy, their conceptions of religious agency conformed to the expansion of neoliberalism, which depends on the confinement of collective action to the market, church, and family. As part of this larger project, Rose is revising a journal article focusing on a 1970s Mennonite cookbook that helped define eating as a site of Christian environmental responsibility and that will be published in the Journal of Religion and American Culture. Rose holds a B.A. in sociology, human needs, and global resources from Wheaton College, and an M.Div. from Duke University.
