Jeannie Constantinou, PhD, has enjoyed USD from both sides of the desk, first as a college student, then as a graduate student, and now as a post-doctoral Fellow in the Theology and Religious Studies Department where she teaches Biblical Studies and Early Christianity. She credits much of her academic success to the good education and the supportive faculty at USD. Her current research efforts at this time focus on the Apocalypse in the ancient Church and Apocalypticism in the history of Christianity. She also has a very strong interest in early biblical interpretation and in first century Roman law. She is also devoted to presenting a historical understanding of the bible to a wider audience beyond the campus, especially Eastern Orthodox Christians, and to this end she records a weekly podcast which has attracted an international following.

Daria Hollowell

Daria Hollowell

Lecturer, Theology and Religious Studies
hollowelldd@gmail.com
(619) 260-7917

Office: Maher Hall 299

Office Hours:

Daria Hollowell has been an adjunct faculty member at USD since September 2002, starting out in the Political Science department teaching International Relations, and then shifting to Theology and Religious Studies  in January 2004.  An alumna of USD’s Theology Department in Practical Theology (1990), Hollowell focuses on the department’s core course requirements of Introduction to Scripture and Foundations of Catholic Theology.

Hollowell came to USD after a 30-year career as a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State.  Beginning in 1973, Hollowell served on three separate continents:  Asia (Hong Kong and Tokyo), Latin America (Mexico three times), and in Europe (Italy twice, Great Britain twice, and France), retiring from Florence, Italy as U.S. Consul General and U.S. Representative to the Republic of San Marino in 2002.  She is married to a retired naval officer and math teacher who accompanied her with their four children during moves with the State Department, settling in San Diego.

Postings in so many places were a lure and hook to an array of interests and concerns ranging from languages to archeology and a keen appreciation of history.  These elements combine to provide three-dimensionality to her course’s fascinating—and always applicable—texts and subject matter.  Hollowell hopes to enrich her students’ appreciation of the richness of having roots in issues that are not just minutes old.
