Instructor: Theology and Women’s Narratives HTE623 / H

As Elizabeth Say writes, “Feminist scholars have long noted the importance of women telling their own stories, in their own voices.” Utilizing frameworks from narrative theology, women’s studies, and “storycatching,” this course will use film, fiction, and nonfiction to understand how “women’s experience” is (1) integral to understanding Christian tradition as a whole, and (2) a vital resource for the peace theology tradition. Beginning with Anita Hooley Yoder’s history of Mennonite Women USA, we will use storytelling and other ritual forms to understand and undertake the theological task. Students may take this course for either history, theology, or ethics credit. (MDiv 4; MACF 4; MATPS 3)
