Dr. Suzanna Krivulskaya is Associate Professor of History at California State University San Marcos, where she teaches courses in gender, religion, and digital history. She specializes in modern U.S. history and studies the relationship between sexuality and religion. 

Her first book, forthcoming from Oxford University Press, is titled Disgraced: How Sex Scandals Transformed American Protestantism. The monograph is a sweeping religious and cultural history of ministerial sex scandals in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It investigates how pastoral sex scandals have been covered in the popular press and how Protestant denominations and the reading public responded to the coverage.

Krivulskaya's work has been published in the Journal of American Studies, Current Research in Digital History, Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, and Religion and American Culture. She is a contributor to Digitised Newspapers — A New Eldorado for Historians? and the Oxford Handbook of Christian Fundamentalism. She has also written for popular outlets like The Revealer, Religion News Service, and Religion & Politics.

Krivulskaya is the recipient of the 2019–2020 Virginia Ramey Mollenkott Award from the LGBTQ Religious Archives Network. She was selected as the 2022–2023 Public Religion Research Institute Fellow in Religion and LGBTQ Rights and as the 2023–2025 cohort member of the Young Scholars in American Religion Program at the Center for the Study of American Religion and Culture.
