Danube is a PhD candidate in the Study of Religion. Her research focuses on the entanglements of early modern natural law, Protestant theology, and constructions of race, slavery, and consent in natural rights discourse. She approaches her research through the critical-theoretical lenses offered by poststructural and postcolonial accounts of subjectivity, as well as the interventions offered by feminist and queer critique of modern thought. 

Danube received a B.A. in Philosophy and Religion at Temple University in 2014 and a M.T.S. in Philosophy of Religion at Harvard Divinity School in 2016. On her days off, you can find Danube chasing squirrels with her dog, Whitney.
