Curriculum Vitae

 

Lenny Lowe was born in Kentucky and spent the early part of his academic career studying theology, philosophy, and ancient Mediterranean languages. After receiving a master’s degree in theological studies from Duke University, he lived on the north coast of Haiti for seven years, teaching at a small college and working on humanitarian and social justice projects. During that time, he met his wife and started his family. He returned to North Carolina to pursue a PhD in the anthropological study of religion at UNC Chapel Hill studying contemporary Haitian religion and culture, Black Atlantic history, American religious history, and the interaction of humanitarianism, development, and grassroots religion in the Caribbean. He is currently completing a dissertation based on fieldwork with a group of controversial Pentecostals in rural Haiti. He lives in Carrboro, NC with his wife and three young boys. The only thing he loves as much as teaching about religion and culture is fishing for wild brook trout in the mountains of North Carolina.
