Currently Distinguished Professor of Theology at Fordham University, where she teaches in both undergraduate and graduate programs, Elizabeth Johnson grew up in Brooklyn, New York, the oldest of seven children in a sprawling Irish Catholic family that included beloved cats and dogs. After receiving a Ph.D. in theology from Catholic University of America (1981), she taught at that university before moving to Fordham. A former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, the oldest and largest society of theologians in the world, and a former president of the American Theological Society, an ecumenical group, she loves to teach and was awarded Fordham University’s Teaching Award in 1998 and Professor of the Year Award in 2011 (most fond of these). She is currently researching Darwin’s idea of evolution in relation to the doctrine of creation so as to make care of the earth an inescapable part of Christian life.
