The Rev. Kara Slade's Big Reveal
For weeks, PhD candidate The Rev. Kara Slade has been hinting at her upcoming move. Due to waiting for the job offer to be finalized, she hadn't revealed the details of her new post - until now. The big news - Trinity Episcopal Church Princeton and The Episcopal Chaplaincy at Princeton (ECP) have partnered to appoint The Rev. Kara N. Slade as a Theologian in Residence and associate priest/chaplain at Trinity and ECP. In the new joint appointment, Slade will serve in the historic Princeton parish and chaplaincy community encompassing students, faculty, and staff at Princeton University, Westminster Choir College, and Princeton Theological Seminary.
This is actually not Kara's first PhD at Duke. Her BSE, MS, and PhD in mechanical engineering and materials science at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering led her to a post at NASA. Somewhere along the way, she decided to pursue ministry and joined our program in fall of 2013.
Kara plans to graduate with the PhD in Religion in May, 2018. Her dissertation "The Fullness of Time: Christological Interventions Into Scientific Modernity" is being directed by Dr. Amy Laura Hall and Dr. Willie J. Jennings. We wish her the very best in her new endeavors.
