Lori L. Fazzino, M.A.
Welcome. I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I earned my Bachelors in sociology from Pacific Lutheran University (2010) and my Masters in sociology at UNLV (2012). My dissertation research examines the lived experiences of everyday irreligion, focusing primarily on the way irreligious members of the Las Vegas Atheist community biographical construct their moral selves and collectively construct and reconstruct their moral order. My masters research examined Evangelical deconversion narratives of former Evangelical Christians and is forthcoming in the Journal of Contemporary Religion. Aside from my academic research, I am a member of the Secular Student Alliance Speaker’s Bureau, act as a consultant on a variety of secular issues, from policy reform to social justice campaigns, and am a graduate student instructor at UNLV.
