Niki Kasumi Clements

Niki Kasumi Clements is the Watt & Lilly Jackson Associate Professor of Religion at Rice University. Clements is an ethicist working at the disciplinary intersection of philosophy of religion and late ancient Christianity, notably on questions of daily practices, agency, and subjectivity. Clements’s research for her second monograph, Foucault the Confessor, engages Michel Foucault’s fascination with Christianity and ethics through both his published works and the archives at the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
