Anna Fisk

Dr Anna Fisk is Lecturer in Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Glasgow, and an activist with Extinction Rebellion Scotland.

As an academic, she writes and teaches on feminist theology and the intersection of religion with culture. Her first book, Sex, Sin, and Our Selves, brings together feminist theology, life-writing, and contemporary fiction. She is currently writing Knitting, Modernity, and the Sacred: Crafting Spiritualities (under contract with Bloomsbury), which explores contemporary crafting communities as implicit religion, and the turn to the crafts as means of contemplation, gestures of love, and rituals of social commitment and activism. All of Anna’s work weaves autobiography into her theological reflection and religious scholarship. She is Editorial Assistant on the journal Literature and Theology, and convenor of the Ecotheologies panel of the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture.

As an activist, Anna is a member of Extinction Rebellion Scotland, who use non-violent direct action to pressure the Scottish and UK governments to act on climate emergency and ecological catastrophe.

Anna is also a craftsperson under the name Knit Wild, working with plant-dyeing and fibre arts as a way of connecting with the natural world.
