About Teresa Mendez-Faith

Beverly Mayne Kienzle received her BA from the University of Maryland and her MA and PhD from Boston College. She began teaching at Harvard Divinity School in 1986 and currently is the John H. Morison Professor of the Practice in Latin and Romance Languages, Lecturer on Medieval Christianity, and the Faculty Director of Language Studies. Her courses on Christian Latin and medieval Christianity emphasize the careful examination of primary sources and the role of texts in medieval culture. As past president of the International Medieval Sermon Studies Society, she channels her passion for medieval sermons into her teaching and her publications on preaching. Her work focuses on the place of preaching and sermons in the history of medieval religion and on evidence for women's preaching in monastic, lay, and dissident communities. A concern about violence against women motivates her continuing research on battering in historical narratives. She has published several books on medieval sermons and preaching, including: Hildegard of Bingen and her Gospel Homilies (2009)- Hildegard of Bingen, Expositiones euangeliorum, co-edited with Carolyn Muessig (2007), and The Sermon. Typologie des sources du moyen age occidental, fasc. 81-83, (2000). Mary-Anne Vetterling is professor of Spanish at Regis College, Weston, MA. She received her BA from Smith College and her AM and PhD from Harvard University, with a specialization in medieval Spanish literature. At Harvard she won the Romance Language Prize for Excellence in Teaching. She has also been the Massachusetts Spanish Teacher of the Year and has received both the Alfonso X the Wise Award from the Ministry of Education in Spain and the Distinguished Service Award from the AATSP (American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese), which she has served in numerous roles, including president in 2003. She is the editor of Enlace, the online newsletter for the AATSP. She has also been a Table Leader at the reading of the Advanced Placement Exam in Spanish for more than twenty years. She has numerous publications and conference presentations on medieval Spanish literature, animals in world literature, Hispanic culture, film, the Camino de Santiago, and the pedagogy of foreign language teaching. She has edited several volumes of essays for conferences and has written extensively for several Spanish textbooks. Teresa Mendez-Faith was born in Asuncion, Paraguay. She received her PhD at the University of Michigan in 1979. She currently resides in New England. An essayist, literary critic and college professor, she teaches Hispanic-American literature at Saint Anselm College, New Hampshire. She has authored several books including Paraguay: Novela y Exilio (1985) and Nuevos contextos: Doce cuentistas contemporaneos de Hispanoamerica (2002), and is co-author of four Spanish textbooks. Teresa Mendez-Faith has been awarded several academic distinctions, including two postgraduate scholarships from the National for Endowment the Humanities, the AAUP "Teacher of the Year" prize at her college (1990) and, also that same year, the "Sears-Roebuck Foundation Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award".
