Kathlyn Breazeale teaches in the areas of feminist and womanist theologies, as well as other theologies emerging from women's experiences, ecofeminist theologies, and the intersection of liberation theologies and the arts. She is particularly interested in how constructions of power influence understandings of God, sin, evil, and humans' relationships with each other and nonhuman creation. She is the author of Mutual Empowerment: A Theology of Marriage, Intimacy, and Redemption (Fortress, 2008) and six articles dealing with issues of sexuality and marriage from a feminist process theological perspective. Other areas of publication include religion and public life, ecofeminist theology, and feminist pedagogy. Her current projects include developing a pedagogy for teaching liberation theologies through film, art, service learning and bioregional perspectives. She is also completing a postcolonial ecofeminist theological analysis of how women and men who are considered "closer to nature" have been denigrated, particularly the Sámi people of Scandinavia and the Spiritual and Shouter Baptists of Trinidad and Tobago.
