Teaching and Research Interests

A product of the wind and snow of Saskatchewan, Christina spent formative years in New Haven and Atlanta before finding a home in the foothills of Alberta. Christina works in the area of contemplative and constructive theology with expertise in residential school history (and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada) as well as indigenous-settler relations.  Current research interests include the intersection of neuroscience, epigenetics and trauma with Christian theology. Christina takes a special interest in the topography of the Grasslands and the broader community of creation. When not walking with her dogs, she may be found admiring architecture, public art, all dogs, or her husband’s enormous board game collection.
