Liberating Liberation Theology: Notes from the “Non” on the 50th Anniversary of A Theology of Liberation

What if Liberation itself must be liberated? Or maybe, like the nonperson and the nonbeing, it has always been breathed into by the breath of white violence.

A Spirituality of Liberation and The Destruction of Hope

Pope Francis suggests that trans people are destroying the world. Perhaps he might learn something if we did.

Catholic Re-Visions Call for Content

Catholic Re-Visions welcomes proposals for its next slate of content. How might we talk of “Catholicism,” being attentive to the past, while engaging with the messy present, to encounter a future that is not yet known?

Decolonizing Knowledge with Brenna Moore and Onaje X.O. Woodbine
