Dr. K. Christine Pae joined the faculty at the Department of Religion in Fall 2008. Since then, she has taught religious ethics, Christian social ethics, and transnational feminist ethics for both the Department of Religion and the Women’s Studies Program. As a Christian feminist ethicist, Christine’s academic interests include feminist peacemaking and interfaith spiritual activism, transnationalized militarism with focus on intersection between gender and race, transnational feminist ethics, and Asian/Asian-American perspectives on post-colonial racial relations.
