Feminist and Womanist Theologies
STH TT 866
Feminist and womanist theologians provide some of the sharpest theological analyses of the ways in which power functions both within and outside of religious institutions. This course explores these contributions to an understanding of power, both divine and human, and the ways in which practices and professions of religious traditions can be both death-dealing and life- giving. How does power operate on bodies, in institutions, in global markets? What is the fuel "the power" necessary for social change and transformation? Examining critical moments in 20th century movements of liberation, this course draws on theory, theology, literature, and media to give theological depth and understanding to religious claims about love, power, and justice.
