Sarah Jobe

Sarah Jobe teaches, studies, and ministers at the intersection of prisons, Practical Theology, and Biblical Studies. She is particularly interested in the theologies that emerge from within incarcerated life and the theologies that support mass incarceration from the outside. Utilizing Christian theology, black feminist theory, collaborative ethnography, biblical studies, clinical psychology, trauma theory, gender studies, and queer theory, Jobe seeks bodied forms of thinking that have the power to fuel just and liberating practices. 

Current Research Interests

Jobe is currently running a nation-wide study of current and former prison chaplains entitled "Theologies and Practices of Current and Former Prison Chaplains." IRB Protocol Number: 2021-0093.
