When Offered: Last offered spring 2020.
Instructor(s): L. Reznik

This course looks at the various ways religious thinkers have used the insights of feminist theorizing to critique and critically reconfigure Jewish and Christian traditions from within and the field of feminist theology that emerged from this critical endeavor. The course will consider feminist critiques of religious doctrine and practice, feminist biblical interpretation, and feminist theological approaches to racism, capitalism, homophobia, embodiment and vulnerability, and ecological disaster. Some time will also be devoted to the interface of feminist theologies with queer and trans theorizing and theologizing. Readings may include texts by Mary Daly, Judith Plaskow, Delores Williams, Sharon Welch, and Marcella Althaus-Reid.
