Research

Wendy Cadge’s research explores issues in contemporary American religion. She is currently working on a series of projects about how religion is present in public institutions including ports, airports, healthcare organizations, institutions of higher education, and other sites. Her current book project, In Between Places: The Everyday Work of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care focuses on Boston as a case study to asks who chaplains are and what scholars can learn about the contemporary religious landscape by starting from their work. She is also involved in ongoing collaborations with colleagues at Massachusetts General Hospital and Hebrew Senior Life that have resulted in publications about ethics committees, the moral lives of health professionals, and how nurses responded to the COVID pandemic in the early months.
