Sally Stamper

Sally Stamper, PhD

Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow

Core Curriculum


Dr. Stamper is a constructive theologian and scholar of religion. Her research focus is human suffering and evil.

As a constructive theologian, I explore fresh resources and avenues of inquiry into the origins of human suffering and the relationship of human suffering and evil to theological narratives of hope. I bring to bear on my research historical and systematic theology, as well as clinical psychoanalysis and theories of human development.

My primary teaching interests are graduate and undergraduate theology, religious studies, and the humanities. I have taught religion, philosophy, women's and gender studies, and humanities prior to coming to Seton Hall as a teaching fellow in the Department of the Core.
