Dr Anna Fisk

  • Lecturer in Theology and Religious Studies (Theology & Religious Studies)

Research interests

My principal research field is feminist studies in religion / feminist theology in the intersection of religion with culture. Much of my work uses autoethnographic methods, bringing critical life-writing practice into scholarship.

I am editorial assistant on the journal Literature and Theology, and convenor of the Ecotheologies panel of the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture.

I supervise postgraduate research projects in practical theology.
