    Raised and educated in liberal Roman Catholic settings, Rosaria Champagne Butterfield earned her PhD from The Ohio State University and was a tenured professor of English and Women’s Studies at Syracuse University where she taught until 2002. In her late 20s she adopted a lesbian identity and her scholarship specialized in critical theory and queer theory. She studied and wrote about nineteenth-century literature and her work was informed by Freud, Marx, and Darwin. She served as the advisor for the campus LGBT group and wrote the university’s policy for same-sex couples. Alongside her partner, she was an active advocate for LGBT aims. In 1999 she was converted to Christ. She described her conversion in her memoir, The Secret Thoughts of An Unlikely Convert. She is married to Kent, a Reformed Presbyterian minister in North Carolina. She is a mother, author, and speaker. Her most recent book is, The Gospel Comes With A House Key: Practicing Radically Ordinary Hospitality in Our Post- Christian World.

    The conference is, From Victim to Guest: Sexuality, Intersectionality, and Hospitality. It begins at 7:00PM at the Heritage Center in Escondido. She’s giving two talks and doing a Q & A session.

    Yes, the talks will be recorded but if you can be there, you should.
