Cara Curtis

Cara Curtis is a doctoral candidate in the Ethics and Society program in the Graduate Division of Religion. Her dissertation, tentatively titled “Fragmented Flourishing: Maternal Perspectives on the Good Life in an Unequal Social Landscape,” investigates maternal conceptions of “flourishing” in the context of U.S. inequality. Drawing on ethnographic research in a theological studies program for incarcerated women and in mothers’ groups at nearby affluent churches, the project argues that flourishing is “fragmented” within social inequality, but that opportunities for intervention can be found in women’s everyday lives. In addition to her work in Ethics & Society, Cara serves as Managing Editor for Practical Matters Journal. She can be reached at cara[dot]curtis[at]emory[dot]edu.
