Ruth is interested in the relationship between religious identity, politics, conflict and peace-building in divided societies. Partially inspired by her own upbringing in Northern Ireland, Ruth has spent time over the past six years in Jerusalem, and recently was a Kathryn Davis Fellow for Peace in Modern Hebrew at Middlebury College. In anticipation of further study, at Harvard Divinity School she will focus on religion, ethics and politics and continue learning Modern Hebrew. She hopes to take advantage of the interdisciplinary nature of her degree program and the resources at Harvard to gain a deeper understanding of what peace and peace-building looks like in the 21st century.
