UP School of Education Doctoral Fellow Danielle Trollinger presents a humorous look at what hipsters have to offer the field of theology. Hipsters are drawn to craft beer, obscure cheeses, organic farms, hand-dipped candles, unconventional socks, and homemade preserves. They love the authentic, the vintage, and the obscure - which is exactly why theology needs them.

Danielle Trollinger is a doctoral candidate in the School of Education at the University of Portland, where she’ll receive her Ed.D. this May. Prior to attending UP, she taught theology for six years at a Catholic high school in Colorado, earning the Cura Personalis Teacher of the Year award for her commitment to teaching the whole person, an orientation that infuses her current scholarly work on human formation, language and imagination.
