Amanda Furiasse received her PhD in Religion and Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies from Florida State University in 2018. Her research unfolds at the convergence of religion, health, and technology and explores how African communities use religious ritual as a mechanism to heal from violence and trauma. She is Co-Founder and Curator at the Religion, Art, and Technology Lab where she produces multi-sensory exhibitions for the public on the relationship between faith, aesthetics, and innovation. She has worked previously at the Museum of Florida History and Loyola University Museum of Art where she has produced public programming and educational curricula for K-12 learners and the general public. She maintains an active commitment to producing educational programming, public scholarship, and research which excites and inspires people to take an active role in their worlds and explore religion’s dynamic and evolving role in their lives and societies.
