I’m a philosophy PhD candidate conjointly enrolled at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where I research the intersections of media theory, politics, and religious studies. I also teach online courses on things like Christian anti-capitalism, Christianity and Marxism, and prison abolition.

Alongside my academic work, I write as the Canada Correspondent for America Magazine, serve as a section editor at Geez Magazine, and do occasional freelance pieces which have been published in places like Sojourners and Commonweal Magazine. I’m available for freelance writing, just send me an email at ddettloff@icscanada.edu!

I also co-host the podcast The Magnificast with my colleague Matt Bernico, exploring Christianity and leftist politics.
