Current Research Interests

Currently, Dr. Willsky-Ciollo's research interests include the study of alternative scriptures, Unitarians, Transcendentalists, women's rights and social reform, liberal theology in traditionally non-liberal Christian movements, and questions of religious authority among Protestants.  Currently she is working on two book projects: a co-authored book with Eugene Gallagher on new religious movements for undergraduates and a book on the theology of Henry David Thoreau.  She is also guest editing a special issue of Nova Religio on new religious movements in the long nineteenth century and contributing a chapter on the Bloomsbury Edition of the Bible in the Nineteenth Century, among other projects.
