Full Bio

Social ethicist and scholar of American religions Jonathan L. Walton, Ph.D., is the Plummer Professor of Christian Morals at Harvard University and Pusey Minister in Harvard’s Memorial Church. He is also a professor of religion and society on the faculty of divinity.

Professor Walton’s research addresses the intersections of religion, politics and media culture. He has published widely in scholarly journals such as Religion and American Culture: A Journal of Interpretation and Pneuma: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies. His book, Watch This! The Ethics and Aesthetics of Black Televangelism (NYU Press, 2009), disrupts commonly held assumptions that associate evangelical broadcasting with white, conservative evangelical communities, while illuminating the ways televangelists’ professed aims are frustrated by their hyper-mediated methods.

Professor Walton’s work and insights have been featured in several national and international news outlets including the New York times, CNN and the BBC. Walton earned his Ph.D. and master of divinity degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary, and the Atlanta native graduated from Morehouse College with a bachelor of arts degree in political science.

Walton was assistant professor of religious studies at the University of California, Riverside prior to joining the faculty of Harvard Divinity School.
