Hillary Kaell Virtual Public Lecture
How do Christians imagine and even experience 'the globe' without leaving home? Christian Globalism at Home responds to this question by tracing how Americans cultivate discourse, aesthetics, and sensations related to feeling connected to the world as a whole. Focusing on child sponsorship plans, a billion-dollar fundraising model used by missionaries and NGOs, it traces multiple relations between money, economic aspiration, and morality in a global context.

Hillary Kaell is Associate Professor of anthropology and religion at McGill University, where she holds a William Dawson Research Chair. Christian Globalism at Home: Child Sponsorship in the United States (Princeton University Press, 2020) is her most recent book.
