Pamela J. Stevens

Adjunct Faculty, San Francisco Theological Seminary at the University of Redlands, Graduate School of Theology

Field of Study:  Church History, Practical Theology, Religion

Pamela studied the material, visual, and experiential qualities of liturgical textiles in Sixteenth-century Spain, England, and New Spain. Her focus is on garments of shame exhibited by the Inquisition in Sixteenth-century New Spain. She employs an interdisciplinary approach and draws from her own multicultural, multilingual life experiences growing up in Los Angeles to explore through the medium of cloth how identities and belief systems weave together amid Christian reform, retrenchment, empire, colonialism, hybridity, and resilience.  Pamela is in discernment for ordained ministry and remains active in ministry with children, youth, and families in English-speaking and Spanish-speaking multicultural congregations.
