Corinna Guerrero

Academic Year Adjunct Lecturer

Corinna Guerrero graduated cum laude from San José State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Comparative Religious Studies. Building upon her ancient and modern language training at SJSU, Corinna moved first to Berkeley, California to study at the Graduate Theological Union then second, and more briefly, to Jerusalem, Israel to study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her work at both institutions earned her a Master of Arts in Biblical Languages degree with a concentration in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Literature from the Graduate Theological Union. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Biblical Studies with emphases in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Literature and Literary Theory at the GTU.

Her current research explores the intersection of biblical literature, violence, and lived religious belief. Areas of special interest include: Deuteronomistic History, the book of Judges, theories of character formation, minor character studies, contextual biblical hermeneutics, as well as trauma and atrocity/torture studies.

At Santa Clara University, Ms. Guerrero is Lecturer in the Religious Studies Department and Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries. She teaches survey as well as content specific courses.
