Dr Dawn Llewellyn is Senior Lecturer in Christian Studies and Deputy Director, Institute of Gender Studies at the University of Chester, UK. Her research focuses on gender and contemporary Christianity and spiritualities. While grounded in qualitative approaches in the study of religion, she also draws on feminist theologies and hermeneutics; sociology of religion; and feminist theory. Her current project examines the interactions between Christian women’s identities, motherhood and voluntary childlessness, and she recently published a monograph entitled Reading, Feminism, and Spirituality: Troubling the Waves with Palgrave Macmillan in 2015.
