About the Instructor

Nancy Thompson's main interests are in aspects of social history, especially the intersections of religion and spirituality with history, including the Holocaust.  She has been published in the Christian Science Monitor, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and many international and national publications. Her collection of poetry, Killing the Buddha, was published by Cherry Grove in 2008, and she has recently completed a manuscript  that examines the commonalities of world spiritual texts and connects those commonalities to modern culture.
