Instructor, Special Programs
Jacki Price-Linnartz is a Doctor of Theology candidate at Duke Divinity School, where she studies theology and the arts as well as Christian ethics.
Her dissertation develops a theological anthropology that diagnosis our current racial imagination as idolatrous. Such an anthropology enables us to identify this idolatry at work in popular entertainment and to develop ways to subvert it through the arts.
Other research interests include how the various art forms can contribute to the tasks of theology, e.g. examining the strengths and weaknesses of visual art for exploring Trinitarian theology. She also studies the connections between the arts, emotion, intellect, and holism, especially in Wesleyan theology and practice.
She also writes fiction and creates visual art as alternative modes of doing theology.
