Assistant Professor of Christian Social Ethics
Drew University, Theological School
Kate's research is in the fields of Christian social ethics, moral theology, and childhood/youth studies. She is particularly interested in issues of sexuality, race, and global consumerism as they shape our sense of moral agency and choice. Her recent academic and activist work place children and youth at the center of inquiry using a feminist and critical social ethics lens. She recently published “Searching for an Ethic: Sexuality, Children, and Moral Agency” in New Feminist Christianity: Many Voices, Many Views. Dr. Ott is also co-editor of Just Hospitality: God’s Welcome in a World of Difference and the forthcoming Faith, Feminism, and Scholarship: The Next Generation.
