Plaskow Faculty/Staff Colloquium – Goddess and God in the World: Conversations in Embodied Theology – April 2016

In their book, Christ and Plaskow engage in a conversation about Goddess and God. After having worked together for decades with a shared critique of the God of biblical traditions as a dominating male other, they were shocked to find that their understanding of the nature of divinity differed greatly. They agreed that traditional views of God not only justify male domination of women, but also other forms of domination, including myriad forms of injustice and war. The colloquium will explore the role of Plaskow’s long-standing feminist scholarly friendship/collegiality with Christ as well as its influence on experimental methods in writing (“narrative theology”) and the experiential (“personal and social”) influences on different (and evolving) beliefs about the nature of the divine and the ways these influences relate to the histories of feminist critiques of (patriarchal, etc.) constructions of the divine.
