Marika is an academic theologian who’s about to start a new role as Fellow in Philosophical Theology at Winchester University. She’s from the North East originally but is currently living in Birmingham. Her first book, due out in 2017, will be titled A Theology of Failure, and she’s interested in exploring what it looks like for Christians to confront the deep entanglement of Christian theology and history with patriarchy, colonialism, racism and class oppression. She loves science fiction, animal jewellery and gold pineapples.
Marika has been a regular contributor to Greenbelt as well as a member of the Ideas team for the past five years. She loves Greenbelt because it’s a rare Christian space where people are encouraged to ask uncomfortable questions, take risks, and get in trouble with other Christians.
