About Chris Dowdy

I write about political forgiveness and other ways communities try to put themselves back together. Newly-minted Ph.D. My spouse and I go to a little Church of Christ where she is chair of the deacons and I teach Sunday school a lot. They take good care of us.

My continuing research is on issues related to systematic oppressions—race, gender, and class—and on how to confront the institutional legacies of those oppressions. If you’re interested in what you see here and you would like to chat about speaking or teaching at your church, college, city council, dinner party, or whatever, I would too. My proper CV is here.
