Intercultural Feminist Theologies
RESEARCH PROJECT AND PUBLICATIONS
Exploring Global Feminist Theologies in a Postcolonial Space: A Learning and Research Immersion Project for Feminist Graduate Students and Post-graduates from Kenya and the US
This project brought together feminist and womanist theologians from Africa and the US in order to create intercultural-pedagogical innovations and original scholarship in theology and religious studies. Eight doctoral students from the US and Kenya gathered in Nairobi for a month long exploration of intercultural pedagogy and research in July 2009. The symposium included an interdisciplinary course on “African Feminist/Womanist Theologies” at the Maryknoll Institute of African Studies. Through modeling, mentoring and participation, this symposium sought to discover strategies for intercultural collaborative learning and to form participants’ pedagogical working skills in light of feminist/womanist and postcolonial concerns.
