Chumie is a 6th year PhD Candidate in Religious Studies, subfield Religion and Critical Thought. Her dissertation brings together Jewish thought, theory of religion, and gender studies through an exploration of pious Jewish women's ritual practices. She holds a BA in Biology and Philosophy from Stern College for Women and an MA in Jewish Philosophy from Bernard Revel Graduate School.
Her enthusiasm for the many kinds of work that happen in writing centers comes from her years as a writing tutor and later as a writing center coordinator. She is delighted to return to writing center work and looks forward to thinking about writing and pedagogy with the wonderful folks at the Sheridan Center.
