This course is an introduction to the emerging field of feminist biblical studies. We will discuss different biblical texts, hermeneutical approaches, methods of interpretation, and theoretical perspectives. Special attention will be given to the ethics of interpretation, and the significance of feminist hermeneutics for contemporary theological reflection and religious leadership. Lectures, group discussions, and presentations seek to foster a participatory, democratic style of learning. Note: Course has group meetings from 1 to 2 pm or by arrangement.
