Valerie Ziegler (Ph.D. Emory University) teaches in the Religious Studies department at DePauw University. She has written a monograph on antebellum peace activism and biography of Julia Ward Howe. Her recent work has focused on Genesis 1-3 in American popular culture. “Enticed by Eden” (Baylor, 2013) examined ways in which evangelical Christians use Adam and Eve as models for courtship, online dating, and domestic discipline (wife-spanking) activities. Dr. Ziegler is currently focusing on creation museums (particularly the Ark Encounter) and their referencing of alien abductions.
