About Dr. Susan B. Reynolds

susan reynoldsDr. Susan Bigelow Reynolds is assistant professor of Catholic Studies at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a Catholic theologian whose work examines the intersection of ecclesiology and lived Catholicism in contexts of diversity, marginality, and suffering.

Reynolds is currently working on the manuscript of her first monograph, An Ecclesiology of Solidarity: Ritual, Community, and the Future of the Catholic Parish, which constructs a practical-ethical vision of community rooted in the capacity of ritual practice to build bridges across difference. The project is based on seven years of ethnographic fieldwork work at a parish in Boston. Other areas of research include migration and parish life, popular liturgical practice, contextual and practical theologies, Latinx theologies, and motherhood and pregnancy loss.

Reynold's work has appeared in American Catholic StudiesNew Theology ReviewExchange, several edited volumes, and in popular venues including The Atlantic and America. (From the Candler School of Theology website)
