Molly Farneth is a Ph.D. candidate in the Religion, Ethics, & Politics subfield. Her dissertation - "Agon and Reconciliation: Ethical Conflict and Religious Practice in Hegel's Account of Spirit" - explores Hegel's account of how conflicts emerge and are confronted in different types of community. The dissertation tracks the role of religious practices in this process and draws on Hegel's account to contribute to contemporary conversations about religious pluralism, ethical conflict, and democracy. Molly's broader interests include religious and philosophical ethics, modern Western religious thought, ritual studies, feminist theologies and gender studies, theories and methods in the study of religion, and democratic theory. Molly has received a variety of fellowships, including a Harold W. Dodds Fellowship from Princeton University and a Graduate Prize Fellowship from the University Center for Human Values. Prior to entering the doctoral program, Molly earned an A.B. from Bowdoin College and an M.T.S. from Harvard Divinity School.
