Lecturer in Catholic Religious Education
Anna Blackman is a Lecturer in Catholic Religious Education at the University of Glasgow. She assists with the work of the School of Education and the St Andrew’s Foundation and has taught widely in the areas of Catholic social thought, Christian ethics, Christian apologetics, and political theology. Her research focuses primarily on the intersection between Catholic theology and Catholic social thought and practice. She is interested in how Catholic social thought can be integrated in the wider body of Catholic theology, forming a holistic approach between the doctrinal and the social. Of particular concern is how this can be achieved in Catholic Religious Education and catechesis.
