Jennifer Banks

Senior Executive Editor for Religion and the Humanities

I oversee an eclectic, interdisciplinary list in religion and the humanities that privileges imaginative, well-written, and rigorously researched work. I am interested in books that explore under-examined areas of human experience, make surprising connections, and offer original interpretations. Areas of interest include religiosity across traditions and time periods, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, philosophy, literary essays, and biography.

Recent books include: Makoto Fujimura’s Art and Faith: A Theology of Making, Susan Bernofsky’s Clairvoyant of the Small: The Life of Robert Walser, Sumana Roy’s How I Became a Tree, Desiree Bailey’s What Noise Against the Cane, Christian Wiman’s Home: 100 Poems, Nathaniel Deutsch and Michael Casper’s A Fortress in Brooklyn: Race, Real Estate, and the Making of Hasidic Williamsburg, Sophus Helle’s Gilgamesh: A New Translation of the Ancient Epic, and François Déroche’s The One and the Many: The Early History of the Qur’an.
