September 16, 2021

Teresia Hinga

Teresia Mbari Hinga, associate professor of religious studies at Santa Clara University, is a founding member of the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians, a pan-African association of women who study the role and impact of religion and culture on African women's lives. She traces the historical footprint of African/a women’s theology and ethics, highlighting key themes, roadblocks to flourishing, and proposals for morally viable ways out of the precarity that characterizes the lives of women and children.

Her talk is one of the Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity, and is part of the McFarland Center's initiatives on Catholics & Cultures.
