Prof. Jeannine Hill FletcherProfessor of Theology, Th.D. (Fordham University)


    Professor Hill Fletcher focuses on how religious identity is constructed and mobilized in a pluralistic world. As a constructive theologian, Professor Hill Fletcher is interested in an inductive method which begins from “on-the-ground” experience as a point of departure for theological reflection. Her role as Faculty Director of Service-Learning in Fordham’s Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice, along with working with the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (in their Undoing Racism training), has led her to investigate intersection of racism and religious diversity in the United States.


    She has recently offered courses in Religion in the Modern World and Religion and Race in America. Professor Hill Fletcher has taught in the undergraduate honors program in Fordham College at Rose Hill. She has offered the required senior seminar for theology majors, “Contemporary Conversations in Theology”, as well as a variety of graduate seminars on theory and method in theology, theological anthropology, and human diversity.
