Welcome to Episode 20 of the Daily Theology Podcast! This installment features Stephen Okey’s conversation with Jessica Wrobleski of Wheeling Jesuit University. In this episode, you will hear about why Prof. Wrobleski says she was “born Catholic but raised Protestant,” her understanding of the relationship between research and advocacy, and how the experience of the mundane shapes the teaching of ethics.

Dr. Jessica Wrobleski is an Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, WV. She previously taught at Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, IN. She earned her Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Yale University in 2009, writing her dissertation under the direction of Margaret Farley, RSM. She later published that dissertation as The Limits of Hospitality (Liturgical Press, 2012). Her research focuses on ethics and particularly social and political ethics. You can also find Prof. Wrobleski’s online writing at the Catholic Moral Theology blog.

Special thanks to Wheeling Jesuit’s Philosophy Club, “Sense and Nonsense,” whose generous support made this conversation possible.
