Peter de Hueck ’19 Profile

Peter is a junior religion major (and classics double???) from Evanston, IL. His interests, in no particular order, include the philosophy of law, environmental history, poetry, complex systems, comparative mythology, American religious history, rowing, infrastructure, ancient greek, film studies, basketball, the philosophy of religion, the history of Christianity, ancient drama, campaign finance reform, editorial work, squash, linguistics, Buddhism, education policy, and the culinary arts. He very much enjoys being on the board of UJHS and thinks more people should read the journal.

Emilee Erdel
Emilee Erdel ’19
Emilee Erdel is a senior Religion major and Women's and Gender Studies minor. She thinks she's a true Midwesterner at heart and will openly disagree with you if you tell her Missouri is a southern state. Her primary academic interests lie at the intersections of religion, gender, sexuality, and politics. In particular, she is interested in the relationship between current U.S. politics and evangelical and fundamentalist strains of Christianity, especially with regards to how marginalized folks are affected in and by this relationship. You can probably find Emilee in the libe with a few pieces of dining hall fruit stuffed in her pockets.

Her interests include the intersection of environment, health and equity (environmental justice issues), civil rights and prison reform, interviewing, creative writing, editorial work, Buddhism, martyrdom and sacrifice, movies, Flannery O'Connor, religious theory, and thinking about who she would like to write a biography for (Norma McCorvey's top on list).
Nathaniel Chew
Nathaniel Chew ’19 Profile
Nathaniel is a junior English and Linguistics major from Singapore. His primary interests are literary and discursive subjectivity and language attitudes; beyond that, anything from poetry to prehistory to postcolonialism is fair game. Nathaniel is also the editor of The Second Laird Miscellany and a consultant at the Writing Center. He has come to terms with his life being one long Writing-Rich 2 module.
