    Dr. Powell teaches Christian theology. Her courses cover the traditional loci of systematic theology but focus on the perspectives of non-dominant groups on those topics. Her courses consider feminist theology, black liberation theology, post-colonial theology, Latin American liberation theology, and contributions from disability studies, among others.

    Dr. Powell was the first-place winner of the Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza New Scholar Award. She also presents regularly at national and regional meetings of the American Academy of Religion.
