Joanna Leidenhag is Lecturer in Theology and Liberal Arts at the University of Leeds, UK. She holds degrees from the University of St Andrews, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Edinburgh. She is currently working on a book outlining how the natural and psychological sciences can be used as a constructive resource for theological reflection, as well as pursuing a project on theology & autism. Her first monograph, published with T&T Clark in 2021, is called Minding Creation: Theological Panpsychism and the Doctrine of Creation. In this book, Joanna argued that panpsychism provides a more promising metaphysical framework for a Christian doctrine of creation than emergence theory. In preparation for this book, Joanna published the article “A Critique of Emergent Theologies,” which we discuss on this podcast.
