About the Discussion Leader

Dr. Elizabeth O’Donnell Gandolfo

Dr. Elizabeth O’Donnell Gandolfo is a constructive theologian in the Catholic tradition whose teaching and research interests coalesce around the following themes in feminist and Latin American liberation theologies: the place of motherhood in theology and spirituality; the theological and political significance of remembering suffering; and the decolonial ecclesiology of Christian base communities in Latin America. Her first book, The Power and Vulnerability of Love: A Theological Anthropology (Fortress, 2015), draws on women’s experiences of maternity and natality to construct a theology of suffering and redemption that is anchored in the reality of human vulnerability. She is also co-editor of Parenting as Spiritual Practice and Source for Theology: Mothering Matters (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017), which brings together theological reflections on mothering by women scholars in theology, bible, and ethics. Gandolfo is currently finishing a co-authored book manuscript entitled Re-membering the Reign of God: The Decolonial Witness of El Salvador’s Church of the Poor (under contract with Lexington Books) and is in the beginning stages of research for her next monograph, Eco-martyrdom in the Americas: Dying for Our Common Home (under contract with Orbis Books). Her articles have appeared in several edited volumes and in scholarly journals such as HorizonsSpiritusTheology Today, and Louvain Studies.
