Assistant Professor of United Methodist Studies and Leadership
Dr. Filipe Maia’s research and teaching focus on liberation theologies, the Christian eschatological imagination, theology and economics, and Wesleyan theology. His scholarship pays special attention to the ways in which imaginaries about the future shape politics, economics, cultural patterns, and religious practices. Employing sources ranging from Latin American liberation theology, Marxist philosophy, and contemporary writings on finance, Professor Maia’s doctoral dissertation builds a theological critique of the temporality of financial capitalism proposing alternative ways of imagining the future.
