- Christian approaches to the natural world, language, and gender
Kristin M. Haas is a doctoral student in Theology at the University of Notre Dame specializing in systematic and historical theology. Haas investigates Christian approaches to the natural world, language, gender, and the Church as grounded in divine love yet damaged by the enduring legacy of sin. Engaged broadly in dialogue with ecological and feminist concerns, Haas is currently focused on the implications of these theological approaches for the biblical image of the “voice” of creation, the significance of place, and the significance of gender in biblical and Trinitarian theology. She is involved with collaborative projects on the abuse crisis in the Church and the meaning of religious life.
Haas received graduate degrees from Boston College (Master of Theological Studies) and the University of Notre Dame (Master of Arts in Theology). She completed her undergraduate degree through the Glynn Family Honors Program in the Program of Liberal Studies and International Peace Studies at Notre Dame.
Haas’s research and teaching have been supported through fellowships at the Indiana University South Bend Center for a Sustainable Future, at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics, at the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture, and at the McGrath Institute for Church Life. In addition to academic publications, her writing has appeared on sites such as Church Life, Millennial Journal, and FaithND.
