Craig A. Ford, Jr.

Craig A. Ford, Jr., joined the faculty at St. Norbert College in August 2019. A moral theologian, Professor Ford writes at the intersection of the Catholic moral tradition, queer theory and critical race theory, with a particular interest in reclaiming an epistemology of pleasure in the discernment of the natural law. A scholar-activist, Professor Ford is a sought-out speaker for sexuality and racial justice workshops and seminars, and his current book project seeks to articulate a new theology of sex and gender for the Roman Catholic tradition. Professor Ford looks forward to working with students whose research projects engage Catholic and other Christian traditions as critical resources for continuing to reflect upon questions of gender, race, sexuality and social justice – both historically and for the future.
