Fernando F. Segovia is the Oberlin Graduate Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at Vanderbilt University, where he is affiliated with the Divinity School, the Graduate Department of Religion, and the Center for Latin American Studies. A focal interest of his is biblical criticism—the nature of criticism as such and its intersection with other fields of studies such as Postcolonial, Ethnic-Racial, and Materialist Studies. Another focal interest is the religious-theological production of the Global South as well as minoritized formations in the First World and the relation of such production to other social and cultural areas of work. He is a past president of the Society of Biblical Literature and a past president of the Academic of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States. Segovia earned his PhD from the University of Notre Dame.
