Kendra Weddle Irons
Kendra Weddle Irons teaches in the religion and humanities department at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth, Texas. She is a frequent contributor to the Evangelical and Ecumenical Women's Caucus website (eewc.com). Her first book is Preaching on the Plains: Methodist Women Preachers in Kansas, 1920-1956 (University Press of America, 2007). She blogs with Melanie Springer Mock at Ain't I a Woman? and has recently published essays about teaching religion in The Christian Century and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
