Maria Clara Bingemer

Maria Clara BingemerBrazilian Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Democracy and Human Development

Maria Clara Bingemer (PhD, Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome) is a noted Brazilian theologian. A full professor at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC), she focuses her research on systematic theology and in particular on Latin American and liberation theology.

At Kellogg, she will work with Faculty Fellow Peter Casarella on their joint book project “God in America: A Comparative Analysis in Latin American and Latino/a Theology.” The project aims open a dialogue between the two theologies, examining such topics as the question of God, the link between faith, politics, economics, and human rights, and the impact of theology on the religious horizons of the Americas, both north and south.

Bingemer is widely published in many languages. Her English works include A Face for God: Reflections on Trinitarian Theology for Our Times (Convivium, 2014), Witnessing: Prophecy, Politics and Wisdom (edited with Peter Casarella, Orbis, 2014), and Mary, Mother of God, Mother of the Poor (with Ivone Gebara, Wipf and Stock, 2004). Forthcoming in English are Simone Weil: A Mystic with Passion and Compassion and The Mystery and the World, both from Wipf and Stock, and Latin American Theology: Roots and Branches, from Orbis.

The former dean of the Center of Theology and Human Sciences at PUC, Bingemer held the first Duffy Lectures Chair at Boston College in spring 2015. She serves on the editorial boards of many theological journals, including Concilium.
