Derek Krueger studies Christian practices in the medieval Eastern Mediterranean. His current project explores the place of desire in Byzantine monastic culture. He seeks to understand homoerotic longing for God in the works of Symeon the New Theologian (949–1022) within the context of pervasive medieval Orthodox homophobia.
