Teresia Mbari Hinga, associate professor of religious studies at Santa Clara University, is a founding member of the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians, a pan-African association of women who study the role and impact of religion and culture on African women's lives. She will trace the historical footprint of African/a women’s theology and ethics, highlighting key themes, roadblocks to flourishing, and proposals for morally viable ways out of the precarity that characterizes the lives of women and children. Hinga is author of "African, Christian, Feminist: The Enduring Search for What Matters" (Orbis Books, 2017).

Her talk is presented by the McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture as one of its Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity.
