Alisha Jones

Hi! My name is Alisha, and I use she/her pronouns. I am a senior studying cultural anthropology at UW with specific interests in identity, group behavior, and human/civil rights issues. Although I am from Fort Worth, TX, where the dominant religion is Christianity, I do not self-identify as a Christian (more agnostic than anything). Both on an academic and personal level, I love learning about the experiences of religious people and how this shapes their perceptions of the world around them. In addition, I am excited to gain fieldwork and writing experience, improve my ability to communicate across cultural boundaries, develop a more holistic grasp on the variety of ways in which religion manifests itself in the Madison community, and engage in meaningful interfaith dialogues.
