TH00362B1: "Her-Story" Feminist Liberation Ethics. 
This is a survey course which aims to critically engage with texts written by women about women and their struggle in the church and faith communities.  As more women theologians write and reflect on ethics and liberation within the Christian communities, as they wrestle with the questions of methods of inquiry, it is imperative that the rest of the church ask what it is that these women's stories, reflections, and the very questions they raise reveal about theology itself. What does it mean to call oneself a feminist, womanist or mujerista theologian? 
(MOROS) 4 crs. 

6:40PM-10:00PM A semester, starts 9/4
