I teach courses in women and religion, Christianity, feminist theory and theology, and religion and popular culture. I help my students explore the relationships between religion and the real social worlds in which religious people live. I am especially interested in the ways in which religious ideas and practices work to maintain as well as challenge social systems that dominate and marginalize certain groups of people: women, poor people, minorities, those of different religious identities. My research has addressed issues related to Latin American liberation theology, interfaith dialogue, feminist theology in the "third world," and American religion and popular culture. My teaching responsibilities include RS 140 Women and Religion, RS 132 Christianity, RS 240 Feminist Theology, and WMST 290 The Seminar in Women's Studies.
