Katharina von Kellenbach, professor emerita of religious studies, has a new book, co-edited with Matthias Buschmeier. "Guilt: A Force of Cultural Transformation" (Oxford University Press, 2022). According to the abstract, the book "investigates the role of guilt in the global discussion of specific legacies of mass violence and injustice....The nuances and complexities of various national and historical guilt configurations foster insights into guilt’s transformative possibilities. The book interweaves specific case studies with broader theoretical reflections." Currently, von Kellenbach is project coordinator at the Evangelische Akademie zu Berlin. Prior to that, she was the Corcoran Visiting Chair in Christian-Jewish Relations at Boston College's Center for Christian-Jewish Learning.
