LaReine-Marie Mosely, S.N.D. is an Assistant Professor of Theology at Loyola University Chicago, where she teaches on the undergraduate and graduate levels. Her areas of specialization include Christology, soteriology, black theology, black Catholic theology, and womanist theology. In her recent work Dr. Mosely engages the Christological projects of Edward Schillebeeckx, Delores S. Williams, and M. Shawn Copeland and the manner in which their soteriological premises speak meaningfully to late modern people, acknowledge difference, and attend to excessive human suffering and cosmic abuse. Further, Dr. Mosely argues that by putting these theologians in conversation, productive insight will emerge that can contribute to a critical Christian soteriology informed by the experiences of African American women. Dr. Mosely earned the Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame in 2008.

Dr. Mosely's present research interests include the role of race in the projects of newer theologians, liberation movements and their corresponding theologies, African American theologies in the United States, and Black Catholic Chicago.
