Eden Consenstein joined the Religion in the Americas subfield in 2015. She is interested in how religious people and communities are represented in North American non-fiction media. Eden holds a Bachelors’ degree in religious studies from the University of Toronto and in 2015 she completed her Master’s in religious studies at New York University. Her thesis, “Buying Into Ordinary: Polygamy and Consumerism on Reality Television,” examined how depictions of consumerism and domesticity establish standards of religious normativity on two reality television shows about Mormon fundamentalists, Sister Wives and Breaking the Faith. Before beginning her graduate studies Eden worked in education programming at the Interfaith Center of New York, where she organized workshops about New York City’s religious diversity for public employees. At Princeton, Eden will study religion and media, religion and popular culture and secularism in North America.
