Associate Dean Dallam's expertise is in the area of American religion and culture. One of the recurrent themes in her work is marginalization; more specifically, she is interested in exploring groups that have become religious and cultural outsiders in the United States, whether by choice or default. Her books include Cowboy Christians (2018), Daddy Grace: A Celebrity Preacher and His House of Prayer (2007), and Religion, Food, and Eating in North America (co-edited anthology, 2014). She also serves as co-general editor of the journal Nova Religio: The Journal of Alternative and Emergent Religions.
