Justin Doran is a third year PhD student researching religion in the Americas.  His work centers on the city of Houston, Texas and the flow of Pentecostal Christianities across South, Central, and North America; especially in Spanish and Portuguese-speaking communities. His current project focuses on the Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus (Universal Church of the Kingdom of God), which is a neo-Pentecostal church based in Brazil with congregations throughout the Southwestern United States. More broadly, he is interested in the practice of exorcism, demonologies, the history of charismatic Christianities, televangelism, prosperity gospels, and enchantment/disenchantment.
