Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow

Core Curriculum


Todd Stockdale is a Practical Theologian and Teaching Fellow in the Department of the Core at Seton Hall University.

My research interests rest within the discipline of practical theology. As a practical theologian, I find myself drawn to the complexities present in lived Christianity and therefore I seek to investigate theological themes through the particularities of concrete situations. This means that much of my own work has been cross-disciplinary in nature and I routinely draw upon various qualitative research methodologies from the social sciences—such as participant observation, in-depth interviews and focus groups—in order to explore a range of theological issues.
