Theologian M. Shawn Copeland, who retired from Boston College this month, was celebrated by colleagues and former students with a Festschrift in her honor. Enfleshing Theology: Embodiment, Discipleship, and Politics in the Work of M. Shawn Copeland (Lexington Books/Fortress Academic, 2019) was edited by Copeland’s former graduate students Robert J. Rivera and Michele Saracino, who write that Copeland “has, with creativity, critical acumen, a constructive vision, and a concrete commitment, shaped the field of Christian theological studies, influenced countless theologians, and demonstrated the public/political significance of theology.”¬† The volume begins with an interview with Copeland, followed by essays from more than a dozen scholars, including current and retired BC faculty members (Roberto S. Goizueta; Mary Ann Hinsdale, I.H.M., and Nancy Pineda-Madrid). Copeland also is a BC graduate; she earned a PhD in systematic theology in 1991.
