Latin American Liberation Beyond the Thea/ological Gender Binary. This introductory course will engage Mujerista and Latina Feminist Thea/ologies as we interrogate their epistemologies, social narratives, and methodologies. We will explore the works of leading Latina Theologians within the context of Liberation Theology. Our learning journey will include the writings of Mujerista Theologian Ada María Isasi-Diaz, Latin American Feminist Theologian María Pilar Aquino, Feminist Eco-Theologian Ivonne Gebara, and Feminist Theologian Marcella Althaus-Reed. We will apply an intersectional lens to our analysis of readings and class discussions to engage questions of philosophical, political, and gender diversity with respect to Latina Feminist and Mujerista Thea/ologies. Our work will focus on interrogating how the different sociocultural contexts and constructions of sexuality, gender, and gender expressions. Grades will be determined by active class participation and three 5 page reflection papers.
