About Me

Suzanna Krivulskaya is a Ph.D. candidate in U.S. history at the University of Notre Dame, focusing on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With interests in religion, gender, and sexuality, she is finishing a dissertation about religion and scandal beginning in the 1830s and spanning through the twentieth century. The project, titled Disgraced: How Sex Scandals Transformed American Protestantism, 1832-1988, explains how religious sex scandals have been covered in the popular press and how Protestant denominations and the reading public responded to this coverage.
