Profile

Stephanie C. Edwards holds PhD in Theological Ethics from Boston College. Her interdisciplinary research is focused in bioethics, specifically the intersections of traumatic experience, religion, and communal practices of memory in response to suffering. Her interest in the world's religions is rooted in extensive travel and living abroad in post-conflict zones, particularly the former Yugoslavia and El Salvador. Alongside teaching she holds a macro-level MSW and is a practicing community organizer and non-profit consultant in Biddeford (where she's also a field education supervisor for USM's BSW program!).
