J.E. Sigler at TEDxVT 2012: Why Nuns Don’t Have Mid-life Crises


J. E. Sigler

Speaker 2012; Graduate Student, Communication

J. E. Sigler is a graduate student and instructor of public speaking in the Communication Department at Virginia Tech. Her research practically applies the philosophies of J. L. Austin and Nicholas Wolterstorff to pin down the concrete ways in which God communicates to individuals, particularly how He communicates His call to religious vocations. In her personal life, Sigler has herself struggled with the agonizing difficulty of discerning her true path, zigzagging through over 3.5 religious conversions, two broken engagements, and multiple career changes. As a teacher, she is particularly concerned to help students discern their vocations, something she believes very few of us these days know how (or bother) to do.
