Jenn Lindsay is an anthropologist and filmmaker based in Rome, Italy. She initially relocated to Rome to pursue fieldwork for her PhD at Boston University, where she studies how different religious and ethnic communities interact and negotiate differences. She also compares the use of "interreligious dialogue" in the Middle East and in the diverse urban center of Rome. Jenn's documentary films on religious communities have screened at festivals and in many classrooms and aim to educate about religion “outside the box”--beyond institutions and policies and within real lives and relationships.
Prior to her PhD studies Jenn earned her Master of Divinity with an emphasis in Interfaith Relations at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and studied arts management at Yale School of Drama and playwriting at Stanford University.
Jenn is presently working on a documentary film about a group of researchers doing cutting-edge research on connections between religion, migration and terrorism--and how computer modeling and simulation pose a unique approach to understanding and creating solutions to these pressing global issues.
She hails from San Diego, California and worked for a decade in New York City as an independent musician and filmmaker.
