Callid Keefe-Perry

PhD Student in Theological  Studies, Concentration in Practical Theology and Religious Education

Research Interests

My work focuses primarily on the development of a public theology of public education, though I also juggle a number of side projects including research on practices of discernment as well as creative and aesthetically grounded approaches to Adult Religious Education.  I am interested in the intersection of imaginative and improvisational practices with religious education and spiritual formation. My work affirms and encourages elements of the theopoetic within traditional theological discourse. While I write from well within my own tradition of the Religious Society of Friends, methodologically I draw from a broad range of sources, frequently from Grace Janzten, Paulo Freire, and Rubem Alves.
