Communities of Resistance and Solidarity: A Feminist Theology of Liberation

Sharon Welch is Provost and Professor of Religion and Society at Meadville Lombard Theological School (Unitarian Universalist).

“I think of Welch as the best kind of activist/academic and consider her a role model,” said Dr. Mary McClintock Fulkerson, Professor of Theology, Duke Divinity School. “Her recent focus on alternatives to the binary ways of thinking about morality and war/peace initiatives and her honest explorations of the amoral character of religion are truly exciting. That she refuses to romanticize religious traditions, even as she attends with utter seriousness to the possibilities for liberative and humane possibilities for global life give Welch a kind of realistic wisdom unusual for an academic.”
