Introduction to Womanist Theoethics

This August intensive will provide students with an introduction to womanist approaches to the study of theology and ethics. Focusing on rehumanizing methodologies grounded in the lived experiences of women of color in Diaspora, this class will offer an intersectional, counter-oppressive lens on moral questions in the day-to-day world. Womanist scholars such as Emilie Townes, Katie Cannon, Delores Williams, Monica Coleman, and Melanie Harris will be used to explore the dismantling of oppression around issues of race, gender and sexuality, and class. Prerequisite readings will be announced.
