We were pleased to chat with Marial Corona about her research on John Newman’s life and contributions to theological and philosophical study, which is the focus of her book The Philosophy of John Henry Newman and Pragmatism. Corona completed her Master’s thesis on Newman’s educational ideas during her time at Notre Dame University (2003-2009). Corona is an adjunct professor for the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago.
