Alexandra Rosado-Román


BA, Sacred Heart University / MA, Seminario Evangélico de Puerto Rico / MA, Drew Theological School / PhD, Vanderbilt Divinity School (Present)




Alexandra is an Afro-Puerto Rican woman interested in discussing how the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and citizenship have worked to control the bodies of racialized women in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean. The heart of her academic work and her use of decolonial and feminist theories with interreligious engagement, resides in her burning desire to rearticulate ethical and moral socio-religious valuations around racialized women on the island. She received the Patricia Wickham Prize for Feminist/ Womanist Scholarship granted by Drew Theological School, a prize that acknowledges overall excellence and creativity in feminist/womanist work.
