Religious Studies

Tiffany Hodge, a 2002 DePauw graduate, came back to teach in DePauw’s Religious Studies department as a postdoctoral fellow. She is completing her Ph.D at Emory University with a dissertation entitled "Piety in Practice: Seeking out Religious Authority in Rural Bangladesh."

Tiffany’s interest in Bangladesh began with a DePauw winter term trip; while still at DePauw, she and Nicole Hallett '03 created the Bangladesh Children's Educational Endowment, with a goal of helping impoverished Bangladesh youths attend college. She received her masters’ degree from Indiana University, and was awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Scholarship to travel to Char Fasson in southern Bangladesh during the 2008-09 academic year and conduct research in Islamic law in rural areas and its influence in the lives of rural Bangladeshi women; her scholarship has been further supported by a prestigious Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship. She has also worked with the Atlanta Center for Torture and Trauma Survivors and Emory's Center for Ethics, and has served as a teaching assistant there. Tiffany teaches courses on Islam, gender, and South Asia. She has also taught Asian Religious Traditions and Genesis and Gender (with Professor Valarie Ziegler).
