Program Areas

My academic interest and pastoral-theological research are primarily:
-Christian art as a source and path for religious education
-Adult faith formation
-Adolescent and adult faith formation in a secular, media culture
-Experiential learning in the religious context
-Faith formation as a dynamic process related to the dynamism in other complex systems

In addition, I try to keep abreast of Continental philosophy as it might have an impact on religious education.

I am interested especially in speaking on:
-Art and theology
    -- How to read Christian images
    -- Theology of icons and other images
    -- History of icons and the icon controversies
    -- Christian history told through its art
    -- Discipleship lessons through Christian art
    -- Spirituality and Christian art (this is experiential and retreat-like rather than a talk)

-Adolescent faith formation opportunities in cyberspace
-Cultural change for an engaged commitment to adult faith formation 
-Experiential learning for adult spirituality

Dr. Daily was awarded a Loyola University Summer Research Stipend Award for summer 2009.  The title of her proposal is "Teaching Visual Literacy and Theological Reflection on Art to Ministers".
