Susanna Morrill is an Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Lewis and Clark College. She teaches courses in United States religious history. Morrill’s research focuses on women in United States religions. Her work in the recent past has focused specifically on how early Mormon women used popular literature in order to argue for the theological importance of their roles in the home, community, and church.
In February 2011 she gave a lecture entitled I Can Control Myself: The 'Twilight' Saga as an American Mormon Tale of Perfectionism at the Portland Center for Public Humanities.
