Ronit Y. Stahl earned her PhD in history at the University of Michigan in 2014. Prior to coming to Penn, she held a postdoctoral research position at the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics at Washington University in St. Louis. Her first book, Enlisting Faith: How the Military Chaplaincy Shaped Religion and State in Modern America (Harvard University Press) was just published. Her research examines religion and the regulatory state, and at Penn she will be focusing on the role of religion in health-related public policy, including conscientious objection in healthcare and negotiating religious pluralism in healthcare settings. Prior to beginning her PhD studies, she received an M.A. in Social Sciences in Education from Stanford University and a B.A. in English from Williams College.
