Andrew Walker-Cornetta joined the Religion in the Americas program in 2014. His interests lie at the intersection of the study of religion and the emerging field of disability studies, particularly regarding the production and perception of disability and its conceptual antecedents in the United States. Walker-Cornetta graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in Religious Studies from Indiana University. After graduating, he helped to develop a day services program for adults with disabilities in Indianapolis, Indiana and in 2014 received his M.A. from New York University’s Religious Studies Program. At NYU, Walker-Cornetta completed his master’s thesis examining ideals of reproductive perfectibility in relation to notions of religious progress in the works of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century feminist reformers.
