This public event will mark Beth Johnson’s retirement from Fordham; celebrate her many contributions to the department, university, church, and academy; and feature a discussion between Prof. Johnson and James Martin, S.J., on her new bookCreation and the Cross (Orbis, 2018).

In addition, the evening will help raise funds for the Elizabeth Johnson Endowed Scholarship, which annually provides a woman Ph.D. student in the Theology Department an additional year of funding to complete the doctoral dissertation.  The event itself is free, but donors to the scholarship fund are warmly welcome to a special pre-reception with Prof. Johnson.

Distinguished Professor of Theology Elizabeth A. Johnson, C.S.J., represents the very best of Fordham. Spring 2018 will be Sister Johnson’s final semester before retirement. In honor of her many contributions, and to celebrate the publication of her most recent book, Creation and the Cross (Orbis Books, 2018), the Department of Theology cordially invites you to a very special event. Siser Johnson will engage in conversation with noted Jesuit writer James Martin, S.J., about the ideas in her book and theological life in the church today.

A member of the faculty since 1991, Sister Johnson is the author of numerous acclaimed books, the recipient of fifteen honorary doctorates, and a former president of both the Catholic Theological Society of America and the American Theological Society. At Fordham, Sister Johnson has mentored dozens of doctoral dissertations and is a beloved teacher of undergraduate and graduate students alike.

Please note that all donations received in connection with this event will go to support the Elizabeth Johnson Endowed Scholarship, a fund that annually provides support to a female doctoral student in Theology.
