Curtis Hutt, PhD
Dr. Curtis Hutt is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at UNO. For the last several years, he has served as of head the Goldstein Lecture Committee and de facto chair of the Goldstein Center for Human Rights Forming Committee.
Curtis earned his Ph.D. in 2007 from Brown University in Religion and Critical Thought. His first book published with the State University of New York Press focuses on John Dewey's approach to religion, propaganda, and the representation of the past. More recently, Curtis has edited a volume on Jewish Religious and Philosophical Ethics with Routledge. In 2019, Routledge published his third book - The Sorrows of Mattidia - on feminist historiography and the representation of women in religious communities in the ancient world.
Presently, inspired by the work of Pierre Bourdieu, Curtis is examining strategic representations of religious pasts related to Jerusalem as well as the historical forgetting that often accompanies them. Curtis teaches Comparative Religious Ethics for the online MACCT program, where the focus is on religion and human rights.
