Catherine Keller practices theology as a relation between ancient hints of ultimacy and current matters of urgency. As the George T. Cobb Professor of Constructive Theology in the Theological School and Graduate Division of Religion of Drew University, she teaches courses in process, political, and ecological theology. She has all along mobilized, within and beyond Christian conversation, the transdisciplinary potential of feminist, philosophical and pluralist intersections with religion.
Her most recent books invite at once contemplative and social embodiments of our entangled difference: Cloud of the Impossible: Negative Theology and Planetary Entanglement (2014), Intercarnations: on the Possibility of Theology (2017), and Political Theology of the Earth: Our Planetary Emergency and the Struggle for a New Public (2018).
Since the start of the millennium she has served as executive director of the annual Drew Transdisciplinary Theological Colloquium. These events have yielded 12 anthologies, mostly published by Fordham University Press; they include most recently Entangled Worlds: Religion, Science and the New Materialisms (coedited with Mary Jane Rubenstein); Polydoxy: Theology of Multiplicity and Relation (co-edited with Laurel Schneider); Common Goods: Economy, Ecology, and Political Theology (coedited with Melanie Johnson-DeBaufre and Elías Ortega-Aponte); Toward a Theology of Eros: Transfiguring Passion at the Limits of Discourse (co-edited with Virginia Burrus).
