Hello! I am a writer and aspiring religious studies scholar. I’m currently completing my Master of Divinity (M.Div) at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond Virginia with plans to pursue doctoral work thereafter. My interests are wide, ranging from religion studies, philosophy, theology, and literature. I am particularly interested in the early modern period with an emphasis on German Romanticism, Idealism, and theology. My hope is to contribute to the scholarship that uncovers how history, literature, and philosophy of this period shaped understandings of religious experience, chiefly related to the relationship between nature, the natural world, and humanity. 

Much of my writing here is just that—writing. Many posts are simply writing exercises that help me synthesize my thoughts. Please don’t take them too seriously. On the other hand, I do hope to share some of my more wholistic or “academic” work I produce here as well. Regardless, thanks for reading. 

If you would like to chat, feel free to email me at dakotawesleywade@gmail.com.
