Dustin Atlas (PhD, Rice University, 2013) is Director of Jewish Studies and Assistant Professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University. His work builds bridges between Jewish Studies and the broader field of Religious Studies, using Jewish thinkers to understand contemporary Judaism in light of recent political, intellectual and ethical trends, especially post-colonialism, new materialism, animal studies, and affect theory. He is working on a book tentatively titled “Buber Talks: Jewish Dialogue and the Nonhuman World.” He previously held teaching positions at the University of Dayton and at Al Quds Bard College.
