In the October 24 issue of America, T. Howland Sanks looks at "The Changing Face of Theology." "Theology mediates between faith and culture," he writes. "Therefore, as the cultural context changes, so does theology. And in the last 40 years the social, cultural and historical context has changed dramatically."

To illustrate the expansion of theology, Fr. Sanks offers a sample of recent dissertation topics in the field. Here we add a few titles to his list. To browse other dissertation topics visit the Web sites of Boston College, Notre Dame or Marquette University (pdf).
