Kara Slade's Defense Committee

Kara Slade successfully defended her dissertation today! Her dissertation "The Fullness of Time: Christological Interventions Into Scientific Modernity" was directed by Dr. Amy Laura Hall and Dr. Willie J. Jennings.

This is 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.

Slade serves as Theologian in Residence and Associate Priest/Chaplain at Trinity Episcopal Church Princeton and The Episcopal Chaplaincy at Princeton (ECP). This joint appointment allows her to serve in the historic Princeton parish and chaplaincy community encompassing students, faculty, and staff at Princeton University, Westminster Choir College, and Princeton Theological Seminary.
