Dr. Rivera teaches and writes across a wide range of contemporary theological studies. She engages the symbols of the Christian tradition constructively, drawing from a variety of theoretical sources, including feminist and gender studies, poststructuralist philosophies, postcolonial theories, and ethnic studies. Her publications include the co-edited anthology Postcolonial Theologies and The Touch of Transcendence: A Postcolonial Theology of God (2007), which explores the relationship between ideas about God’s otherness and models of inter-human difference.
