TMCE 8063 Social Ethics in Feminist Perspectives (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

In the past fifty years women’s voices and the voices of people who have been marginalized have been raised and heard in unparalleled fashion in the academy and society; neither has theology remained untouched or unsympathetic. Acknowledging that “the personal is political”, this course will explore the social constructions of sex and gender to unpack practices contrary to human flourishing as protected by the status quo across time and place. Attention will be given to some of the key insights that feminist and other context-based theological ethics have raised and the social challenges these critiques engage.
