2016 Feminist Liberation Theologians’ Network Gathering

2016 Feminist Liberation Theologian’s Network Gathering in San Antonio, TX


Friday, November 18, 2016 from 4PM – 6PM

Convention Center 215 (2nd Level-West)

The Feminist Liberation Theologians’ Network sponsored by the Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual (WATER) will discuss Intersectionality and Political Action.

Speakers will look at kyriarchal structures that oppress as well as look at feminist theological resources/actions that are conducive of justice. Discussion and strategizing will follow short presentations by:

  • Nami Kim, Associate Professor, Spelman College: “My/Our Survival Not at the Expense of Somebody Else’s: Forging an Intersectional Coalition”
  • Judith Plaskow, Professor Emerita, Manhattan College: “I’m here as a Jewish feminist”
  • Andrea Smith, Associate Professor, University of California Riverside: “Beyond Ethnographic Entrapment: Changing the Terms of the Debate”

This year, as last year, the Women’s Caucus and the Feminist Liberation Theologians’ Network will collaborate to continue our discussion in a Caucus session on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 9-11:30 AM in the Women’s Lounge. They have scheduled papers that dovetail with our theme, and there will be time for some responses to our work. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who wish to deepen conversation about our theme of intersectionality and political action. You are more than welcome to attend the Caucus session, though it is not obligatory. Mary E. Hunt will be there to offer a response from our group and other voices are more than welcome.
