Disruptive Cartographers: Doing Theology Latinamente

Series Editors: Carmen M. Nanko-Fernández (Catholic Theological Union in Chicago), Miguel H. Díaz (Loyola University Chicago), and Gary Riebe-Estrella, S.V.D. (Catholic Theological Union in Chicago).

This multivolume series re-maps theology and pushes out in new directions from varying coordinates across a spectrum of latinidad as lived in the USA. Authors reconfigure and disrupt key areas like revelation, eschatology, and trinity. Other volumes complicate and advance even further key themes of significance in Latin@ theologies, including the option for culture, religious diversity, and Mary.
