Chelle Stearns

Chelle Stearns is an associate professor of theology at The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. Her academic work focuses on the interaction between theology and music. In her forthcoming book, tentatively titled Handling Dissonance: Unity, God, and Musical Space, she explores the concept of unity through Arnold Schoenberg’s understanding of musical space, coherence, and dissonance, placing his philosophy in dialogue with contemporary Trinitarian theology. Her more recent research concentrates on how lament in art, music, and liturgy can help us expand our theology, especially in light of the drama of the human story.
