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, God Around the Edges? Moral Frameworks in Times of Crisis, asks who chaplains are and what scholars can learn about how people make sense of suffering by analyzing their daily 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 and the impact of chaplaincy.
