Elaine Graham is Grosvenor Research Professor of Practical Theology at the University of Chester working at the interface of theology and practice. Her current research is addressing issues of public theology and the role of faith in public life.
Elaine has been influential in developing the field of “theological reflection” and attempts to reconnect Christian practice and doctrine. She was a member of the Commission on Urban Life and Faith, a multi-faith and ecumenical group convened by the Church of England, which was set up to examine the state of our cities and towns twenty years on from the report, Faith in the City. Its report was published as Faithful Cities: a call for Celebration, Vision and Justice (Methodist Publishing House: 2006).
Some in the Diocese will also know Elaine as Programme Leader for the professional doctorate (Doctor of Professional Studies) in Practical Theology, which offers students from a wide range of occupational and professional contexts the chance to develop their own practice-based theological research projects.
