Rebecca C. Bartel

Rebecca C. Bartel is assistant professor in the Department of Religious Studies at San Diego State University. Her research takes an anthropological approach to tracing the intertwined realms of religion and political economy throughout the Americas. Her current book project, entitled “Card Carrying Christians: Spirits of Faith and Finance in Colombia,” is an ethnographic account of the entanglements between Christianity and debt in Colombia. Building atop more than a decade of professional and research experience in Colombia, Bartel considers how systems of belief and structures of capital evoke a financialized subjectivity.
