Adam F. Braun
Lecturer in New Testament and Theology
Dr Braun teaches Greek, New Testament, Paul, and other electives which highlight class, queer theory, race theory, and political theology. Pedagogically, Dr Braun aims to create spaces for students to encounter difference around historically marginalized power, to critically interrogate the contexts that produce traditions, and to inquire about possibilities for future communities to practice abolition and care.
