Union Alumna Teresa Delgado will be at an Author’s Series Talk and Book signing event on Sunday, December 3rd to share her new book, A Puerto Rican Decolonial Theology: Prophesy Freedom.
This book explores the themes of identity, suffering, and hope in the stories of Puerto Rican people to surface the anthropology, soteriology, and eschatology of a Puerto Rican decolonial theology. It demonstrates how Puerto Rican literature and Puerto Rican theology are prophetic voices calling out for the liberation of a suffering people, on the island and in the Puerto Rican Diaspora, while employing personal Puerto Rican family/community stories as an authoritative contextual reference point. This work stands within the continuum of contextual theology and diasporic studies of religion in the United States, as well as research in the interdisciplinary field of decolonial and post-colonial studies.
The event will take place at Iona College where Teresa is a Professor in the Religious Studies Department, as well as Director of Peace and Justice Studies.
This is a free event, all are welcome to register here.
