Profile
Adam David Wert is a PhD Candidate working on the theology and social thought of Rowan Williams. He holds degrees from Harvard Divinity School (MDiv) and Grinnell College (BA). His research centers on how theological texts and practices form their readers, with special attention to the social and political consequences of apophatic language. His work engages modern Christian theology as it intersects with continental philosophy, political theory, modern science, and popular culture. His dissertation examines and critiques the apophatic and dispossessive aspect of Rowan Williams’ work, drawing attention both to its Hegelian and Christological roots, and to its mode of social engagement. His teaching seeks to create sites for critical, dispossessing encounters with texts and ideas.
