Women and Gender in Religion Panel Discussion

Ann Braude, Amy Hollywood, Elizabeth Gish, Ben Dunning, and Nan Hutton reflected upon this set of questions: What for you is most interesting and distinctive about conjoining the study of religion with that of women, gender, and sexuality? What are the special intellectual opportunities, and what are the potential pitfalls specific to this line of investigation? Where does the field of women's and gender studies in religion stand now, from your vantage point: what is exciting, and what is not? What is your vision of where the field could—and should—go? After initial comments, the discussion was opened to the audience.

The Study of Women and Gender in Religion Forum is organized by Janet Gyatso, Hershey Professor of Buddhist Studies, who introduces this talk.
