Professor Berger holds doctorates in both dogmatic theology and liturgical studies; her scholarly interests lie at the intersection of those fields with gender theory and with cultural studies. She has written extensively on liturgy and women’s lives and produced in 2007 a video documentary called Worship in Women’s Hands. Her recent publications include Women’s Ways of Worship: Gender Analysis and Liturgical History, Dissident Daughters: Feminist Liturgies in Global Context, and Fragments of Real Presence. She has also published monographs on the hymns of Charles Wesley and on the nineteenth-century Anglo-Catholic revival. In the spring of 2006 she co-edited an issue of the subaltern Web dossier Worlds & Knowledges Otherwise, titled The Poetics of the Sacred and the Politics of Scholarship. Most recently, Professor Berger produced (with MysticWaters Media) an interactive CD-ROM called Ocean Psalms, featuring meditations, prayers, songs, and blessings, all focused on the sea. Professor Berger is particularly interested in the cross-cultural dimensions of teaching. She has been a visiting professor at the Universities of Mainz, Münster, Berlin, and Uppsala. In 2003, Teresa Berger received the distinguished Herbert Haag Prize for Freedom in the Church.
