Feminist Cross Cultural Perspectives on Beliefs and Practices

Susan Abraham

Description

This course examines feminist practical theological critiques of the relationship between beliefs and practices in the context of global imperial logics of masculinist dominance. Feminist theologies advancing plural and intersecting liberation perspectives on race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, culture and rhetorical positioning will be investigated. A primary outcome of this course is to develop an awareness of polarized strategies influencing identity construction, ethical inclusivity and the usefulness of theologically saturated languages to counter imperial logics.
