David W. Miller
Ph.D.: University of Chicago, 1968
Department Member Since: 1967
Dr. Miller researches Irish social history, primarily between 1760 and 1870. He is currently at work on a book on Irish Christianity in the North of Ireland during the famine era, 1829-1869.
This study embraces both interpretive approaches to religious ideas and institutions and quantitative approaches to religious behavior and to the sources of conflict in mid-nineteenth century Ireland, especially the massive changes in class structure associated with the Famine of the 1840s.
Miller also serves as coordinator of Carnegie Mellon University's minor in religious studies.
