Academic Staff

Professor Anne Tuohy began her career in education teaching in New Zealand’s Catholic Integrated Schools. She completed both her Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Theology at the Sydney College of Divinity. Anne was awarded a Doctorate in Philosophy from The Australian Catholic University for her research critically comparing the Political Theology of J. B. Metz with the Feminist Hermeneutics of Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza. She held a variety of lecturing, co-ordinating and leadership positions in the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy at Australian Catholic University, teaching across the areas of systematic and contextual theologies with a special interest in feminist theology. At the invitation of the New Zealand Bishop’s, Anne returned to New Zealand to be the inaugural director of the Catholic Institute of Aotearoa NZ.
