Trentaz proposes an inclusive, complex framework for understanding the creation and maintenance of risk of contracting HIV & AIDS, takes a hard look at dominant theologies and proposes a new way of approaching a theo-ethical response to the pandemic within a communal ethic of 'risk-sharing,' privileging the voices of the marginalized.
CASSIE TRENTAZ lives in Portland Oregon where she is an Assistant Professor of Theology, Ethics, and Church History at Warner Pacific College, USA. Her teaching and research interests lie in the contextual intersections of theology, ethics, anthropology, and history and her commitments include theological and ethical reflections on the ways racism, classism, sexism, ecological concerns and other structures of power differentials that influence human experience and community. She is also interested in what thoughtful, engaged theo-ethics have to say back to those structures in the complex contexts of our times and our places. She is a teacher, activist, and minister.
