November 1, 2018

On Thursday, Nov. 8, 7:00 PM, in Pigott Auditorium, Dr. Natalia Imperatori-Lee, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College, will offer the Theology and Religious Studies Department’s Ann O’Hara Graff Lecture on “The Latinx Catholic Imagination and the Future of American Catholicism.” Her scholarship focuses on Latinx theology and the role of women in the Catholic Church. She recently published Cuéntame: Narrative in the Ecclesial Present (Orbis Books, 2018).

From the Manhattan College website:

“Dr. Imperatori-Lee’s research interests focus on Catholic ecclesiology, in particular, the intersection of popular religion, devotion, ecclesial identity. She is also interested in issues in U.S. Latino/a theology, including the intersection of Mariology and ecclesiology, theological trends in the Catholic Spanish-speaking world, and the relationship of women, the poor and other marginalized groups to church structure and governance.”
