Travel Seminar leader:
Dr. Jennifer Owens-Jofré, a 2018 Louisville Institute Postdoctoral Fellow, is visiting assistant professor of practical theology for the next two academic years (2018-19 and 2019-20). The goals of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards are to facilitate an excellent first-time teaching experience in a theological school that the Institute trusts and to help Fellows more clearly understand and articulate their vocation as theological educators.
Owens-Jofré defended her PhD in theology from the Graduate Theological Union this August. She holds the Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School and the BA and MA from Loyola Marymount University. Raised in a bi-cultural family, Owens-Jofré is a Roman Catholic laywoman whose scholarship has focused on Latina piety in Catholic congregations. She is co-editor, with Kate Dugan, of From the Pews in the Back: Young Women and Catholicism (Liturgical Press, 2009). Her chapter, “Who Will Heal the Wounds of the Church? Women’s Lay Ministry and Priestly Power,” has been accepted for publication in the forthcoming book Shared Vision, Different Voices, Many Vocations, Tina Beattie and Diana Culbertson, eds. (Paulist Press).
