Black Women and Global Pentecostalism

Judith Casselberry


This course examines black Pentecostal women across the globe, attending to issues of female religious authority, identity formation, community production, music, and domestic/public spheres. In so doing, the course will unpack gendered and regional particularities of Pentecostalism's appeal, its intersection with configurations of gender, race, and class, its impact on women's lives, and the local, regional, and global implications of its growth and influence. Case studies include the Americas, Caribbean, and Africa.
