Resume / CV

Heather M. DuBois (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame) specializes in critical approaches to religion, violence, and peacebuilding and political theology. Her current research articulates intrapersonal transformation in terms of power, desire, virtue, and praxis, drawing upon the critical theory of Judith Butler, the mystical anthropology of John of the Cross, and the affect theory of Silvan Tomkins. She is completing a manuscript that conceptualizes movement through identity-based impasse. Her next project will be a comparative exploration of religious and secular spiritualities committed to pluralism and solidarity. Heather’s pedagogy employs multi-disciplinary resources to investigate contemporary issues. She has taught courses on suffering and evil that incorporate philosophy, theology, psychology, peace studies, ethics, political science, and the arts. At FSU, she is teaching “Religion and Conflict” and “Gender and Religion.”
