Lena Rose (née Wettach) is a DPhil candidate in the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology and COMPAS.
Her doctoral research focuses on encounters across difference between Palestinian and European/North American evangelical Christians. She is interested in how these encounters are shaped by historical, ethnic and cultural difference, as well as differing interpretations of biblical scripture that lead to opposing political and social commitments. More widely, her research addresses the tension between religious belonging and citizenship, and critically investigates global religious connections that are perpetuating uneven social and political structures.
