Student Profile

Jessica Coblentz

Jessica Coblentz, a PhD Candidate in Systematic Theology, is beginning a dissertation that develops a theology of suffering grounded in contemporary experiences of depression and insights from the resurrection. During her time at BC, she served as a co-coordinator for the Boston regional gathering of the College Theology Society and a Colloquium on the Status of Women in Catholic Theology. Jess has been active in professional and volunteer lay Catholic ministry throughout her studies, including work in BC's Division of Mission and Ministry. She is grateful that the Theology Department has nurtured her commitment to theological scholarship and education that challenges violent worldviews and spurs liberating praxis.
