TMOT 7133 Women in Scripture (Summer: 3 )


Course Description

This course will begin with an overview of feminist biblical hermeneutics - its history and variety - and then we will examine depictions of women throughout the Christian Bible. Part of this analysis will consist of looking at these depictions from different feminist perspectives. Another part of our analysis will be a consideration of the stories' social and cultural contexts, especially what archaeology can tell us about women's lives in antiquity.

Comments: This 3-credit course will meet summer 2017 June 26-July 13, Monday-Thursday from 5:45 pm-9:00 pm. Note: Given the brevity of these courses, it is essential that students come prepared to engage in learning the very first day. To facilitate this, each course has 'Pre-Class' work to complete. This generally includes reading and often requires a written essay to be submitted before or on the first day of class. See the summer course webpage: http://www.bc.edu/schools/stm/summer/summercourses.html for more information.
