Cornell University
Visiting Scholar, 2022-23 Study #4

As a convener of national conversations on religion and science and a chaplain to graduate students and faculty at Cornell, Eagleson supports faculty conversations on the ethics and societal impact of emerging technologies. As a visiting scholar at CASBS, she will create a report for religious organizations outlining best practices and key scholarship for curating academic and public conversations on artificial intelligence, religion, and the social sciences.


Eagleson serves as Director of Innovation and Partnerships for American Scientific Affiliation (ASA), an international network of Christians in science dedicated to promoting dialogue on science and faith. She launched and currently leads the student/early career track at the ASA Annual Meeting. She is also director of graduate and faculty engagement for Chesterton House, a center for Christian studies at Cornell. Through Chesterton House, she also directs The Ithaca Roundtable on Science and Religion, a project which brings faculty of all belief systems together around a fine meal to discuss scholarship on religion and science. Eagleson holds a PhD in early modern literature from the University of Delaware and an MA in liberal arts from St. John’s College (Annapolis, MD). Her dissertation focused on poets John Donne and George Herbert, both authors who deepened her interest in the history of science. Eagleson is the editor of Science and Faith: Student Questions Explored (Hendrickson, 2019).
