She received her Ph.D. in history from Boston University and is a past fellow of the Center for Religion and American Life at Yale, the Charles Warren Center at Harvard, and the Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton. Professor Kittelstrom is an historian of modern thought and culture who specializes in nineteenth-century American thinkers and their contexts.
