Leo Guardado

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Notre Dame in a joint degree program between the Theology Department and the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. I received my Bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College of California (’04) and my Masters in Theological Studies from the University of Notre Dame (’08). My area of concentration is systematic theology.

The research questions that drive my inquiry deal with the reality and experience of conflict and its relation and impact upon the task of theology. Particularly, how conflict forms, deforms, and transforms theological thought and prophetic witness. I am also interested in U.S. Latino engagements with Latin American Liberation Theology, with ecclesiological implications of immigrant communities, with violence at the U.S. Mexico border, and with socio/political/religious issues affecting El Salvador, my country of birth.

The academic pursuits listed above are complemented by a love of gardening, cooking with many spices, baking crusty breads, and scavenging for unique items at great prices in used goods stores!
