Niamh Colbrook


I obtained my BA in Theology and Religious Studies (1st class) in 2016 from the University of Cambridge, and was awarded the Theological Studies Prize.

I am now studying towards the MPhil in Christian Theology, funded by a Peterhouse Graduate Research Studentship. My work will focus primarily on theological anthropology and theological approaches to embodiment, and will seek to construct a theological approach to eating disorders in dialogue with Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Creation and Fall. In doing so, I will consider the nature of human selfhood and personhood (and the possible distinctions between them), the importance of pneumatology in theological anthropology, and the significance of time and change in the experience of human existence.
