Theme: Saturday Emerging Scholars: Redefining Fields: Considering New Resources

Alicia Panganiban, Northwestern Medicine, Presiding

Theresa A. Yugar, California State University, Los Angeles, Presiding


Saturday – 1:00 PM-3:00 PM

Convention Center-14A (Mezzanine Level)

The disciplinary histories of religious and theological studies have been shaped by patriarchy, White supremacy, and colonialism in ways that are being challenged in new introductions to both fields: Grace Ji-Sun Kim and Susan Shaw’s Intersectional Theology: An Introductory Guide and Sarah Bloesch and Meredith Minister’s Cultural Approaches to Studying Religion: An Introduction to Theories and Methods. Both texts seek to redefine their respective fields by reimagining foundational patterns of teaching and interventions in theology and religion courses. This roundtable explores these interventions creating a path toward better introductions to both fields, cooperation between the disciplines, and reducing the need to draw sharp lines to protect hegemonic ways of knowing.
