Featured Author: Ann Hidalgo

Ann Hidalgo is the first speaker in the Voices of Christian Thought 2016-2017 season. VOCT, sponsored by the Pacific Christian College of Ministry and Biblical Studies at Hope International University, brings Christian thinkers on campus to present lectures and to engage in dialog.

Dr. Hidalgo is a specialist in Latin American feminist theology. She earned a Ph.D. in Religion, Ethics, and Society from Claremont School of Theology. Her dissertation, Liberating Liturgy: Voices of Latin American Theology, uses feminist and decolonial theory to examine liturgies in the liberation theology tradition that empower marginalized communities.

Ann is part of the editorial team for Perspectivas, the journal of the Hispanic Theological Initiative, and Horizontes Decoloniales, a tri-lingual journal focusing on global political and religious discourses. She also currently works as the acquisitions librarian at the Claremont School of Theology Library.

An evening lecture, "Covering Itself in Ashes: A Brazilian Church Repenting and Making Amends for Racist and Colonialist Theology,” is open to the public on Monday, September 26th, 7:00 to 9:00, in Room 205 (2nd floor of Nutwood East).
