“Engaging the texts of a tradition is powerful, challenging, and often difficult work that helps us rethink, renew, and transform ourselves, our faith communities, and the world. My hope is that the classroom can facilitate this work by providing the space for meaningful conversations between students, instructors, texts, and traditions.”

Dr. Radzins’ research interests lie in the intersection of theology and political theory, philosophy, and women’s/gender studies. She teaches courses in constructive, feminist, and political theology, Swedenborgian thought, and modern philosophy. Dr. Radzins has published articles on Emanuel Swedenborg and Simone Weil, and is currently working on a manuscript that explores the relationship between politics and cosmology in Weil’s works.
