About the Keynote Speaker
Dr. Maria Teresa Dávila serves as Visiting Associate Professor of Practice of Religious and Theological Studies at Merrimack College, North Andover, Massachusetts. She focuses her energies on questions of ethics and public theology in the United States such as migrant and racial justice, the use of force, the role of government, and diverse visions of the common good. She grounds her efforts on the option for the poor as a central insight of who God is, how God acts in the world, and what ought to be the Church's character. As an activist scholar, her publications include works on race, racial justice and theological ethics; Latino/a mujerista ethics and public theology; immigration; and the use of the social sciences in Christian ethics. She is the coeditor of Living With(out) Borders: Theological Ethics and Peoples on the Move (Orbis, 2016).
